a place to showcase

And the giraffes spot me!

We passed this sign, and then just a kilometre or so later we encountered veritable HERDS of giraffes!

Imagine my delight….

Don’t you just love their curious expressions?! And those distinctively patterned coats against that vivid lush greenery….

Rapture.

      • I am doing the Artist Trading Cards project where you have to paint one card each day for 30 days. After that all 30 artist who participate get together and exchange their art. Before I go to the trading party which is next weekend I will make a photo of all my cards and will post it on my blog.

  6. Beautiful shots! I’ve wanted to visit Tanzania and/or Kenya since I was little. Maybe one day. In the meantime, it’s fun seeing it vicariously through your photos.
