Baby giraffe nursing

Baby and mother giraffe near Kruger National Park

Our guide said it was unusual.  Unusual to see a baby giraffe nursing from its mother.  But we have no idea if it were an unusual sighting or not.  After all, it was our first and possibly only safari.

But regardless of how uncommon it might be to see one little giraffe grateful for its belonging  — to his/her mother, to the tower of giraffes in the area, to the game preserve on which it lives — we relished in the sight since we were in a good place at the right time. And a glimpse of the ordinary became extraordinary for us.

    Great photo. It is special. We watch the black tail deer fawns nursing on our property in the spring and early summer. It is always a privilege. The little tykes can get a bit rough, though. Ouch. 🙂 –Curt

It makes our day to hear from you.
