A Disgruntled Giraffe

On my safari, we stumbled upon a giraffe while it was eating. Giraffes are very rare in the area we were at, so this was a real treat! To get the giraffe to look up at us, we had to loudly clap our hands. We took turns between clapping and photographing. We were ecstatic, even if the giraffe looked a little disgruntled by having its' meal disturbed!
