Thirsty Giraffe

I discovered on my Botswana trip that I am quite a good spotter of wildlife, beating our guide in some instances. But the giraffe was different. I had difficulty seeing them, even when they were pointed out to me, they blended in so well with the trees with their fabulous camouflage.

It’s quite a production for giraffes to drink, having to get themselves into this awkward position. Notice the birds on her head.

They’re sneaky, I tell you.

    Wow. That posture for drinking looks really… what? Inefficient? Inelegant? Uncomfortable? I thought better of evolution.
