Giraffes don't get enough attention. Their total numbers are dropping rapidly, although they have stabilized in a couple of regions of Africa. Giraffes recently slipped onto the endangered species list as vulnerable. Some sub-species are near extinction. They are graceful creatures that are a pleasure to watch, and photograph. Attached are six photos; three Cape Giraffe or Southern Giraffe in the Okavanga Delta, Botswana, and three Masai Giraffe in the Masai Mara, Kenya.

Southern Giraffe drinking. When they finish they rapidly lift their head and spew water, and the oxpeckers scatter.

Thanks Joshua. I like that photo too. It was fun to have it so interested and close to us. A few seconds after the photo he (or she) pivoted and ran back to the parents.

Thanks Birdie. That is one of my favorites. It was a beautiful day and the giraffes were posing nicely.

Thanks for your comment. Underappreciated is a good term. They are so gentle and there is no sense of danger around them, unlike with the big cats who get a lot of attention. Unfortunately all populations are dropping.
