Photo Hunt Saturday--Theme: Different

To learn more about Photo Hunters visit TnChick.

This was my very different birthday present last year. When we went to the Woodland Park Zoo with the grandkids, my daughter, knowing how much I love giraffes, paid for me to get to feed one.

Yes, a very different and uncommon gift - feed for giraffe! I know where to go when I want to feed a giraffe. The one I saw at another zoo stretched its neck to eat the leaves from a tall tree.

I wondered how you could get high enough to feed a giraffe. Looks like it can be done!! LOL Good Photo for this week's theme!!

Katney said...

ancient one, the giraffes' enclosure has a sort of canyon, and this viewing area is at the edge of a bluff overlooking it.

Oh! That is just precious!!!!!! i love unique presents as you well know. . . ahhhhhhhhh memories of Mt. Rainier!!!! I think I would have had to feed a baby giraffe as even tho they are a beautiful creature, they are powerful scary up close!
