On the road…, originally uploaded by nasieku.

Giraffes are totally awesome, but they look so ridiculously awkward while drinking! (Fact I learned from the original photographer: the valve pumping blood to the head closes while the giraffe has its head down drinking – if not, giraffes would be fainting all over waterholes and lions would never have to exert themselves!)

I also recommend this photo/blurb about a baby giraffe!

Enjoy today’s photo! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.
