Wordless Wednesday-#6

My favorite zoo animal - the GIRAFFE. Isn't it beautiful?

Last summer we were fortunate enough to get to vacation in Florida. I took this picture while visiting their zoo. We even got to feed the giraffes. Our zoo (The Oklahoma City Zoo) doesn't have that option.

The giraffe is also my favorite animal at the zoo. Everytime we go to the zoo my daughter and I fight over who gets the best view.

Dee said...

Awww..great picture! We go to the zoo ALL the time! My fav is the penguins!!

Chris said...

Great picture. Griaffes are really beautiful animals. We didn't get to the zoo last summer but I plan on dragging the fam out there as soon as it gets warmer. I know it's open year round but I am sure even the animals think it is too cold right now.

Sarah said...

Great photo. How fun that you were able to feed them, would love to be able to do that!

Keri said...

Just one of my all time favorite animals! Nice photograph!

Alrighty then, since you are up to the letter game, list your ten favorite things starting with he letter 'N'.

Feeding the giraffes is our FAVORITE part of visiting the zoo. They are so beautiful. Such a beautiful pic.

Midwest Mommy said...

That is a great shot! I can't believe you got to feed them. Our zoo doesn't allow that either.

That's awesome! There's a zoo about an hour away from us where you can feed the giraffes too. It's so weird to see those long purple tongues but yet, so neat to get that close.

I like your picture a lot. I don't think I've ever seen a giraffe resting before now that I think about it.

Miss JC said...

Aww..I want to hug his neck! He/she is a beauty.. we should write a petition to the OKC and demand feeding time with these babies!
