for World Giraffe Day

Ray alerted me to this day when he read about it in the newspaper this morning:

"World Giraffe Day is a new and exciting initiative of the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF) to celebrate the longest-necked animal on the longest day or night (depending on which hemisphere you live!) of the year - 21 June! "

So here's one I took earlier and which I'm posting in celebration now!
I think he/she looks rather proud?!
Wow! Excellent, Hazel

A fantastic capture for a celebration of Giraffe's. A great idea

Brilliant shot and excellent detail. Ideal shot for World Giraffe Day and the longest day in the UK. Perhaps I should post something with the shortest neck because in Australia it is the shortest day. IBeing the winter solstice). Our days start to get longer now as we head through winter towards spring. .
