    This is such a warm moment! Pictures of giraffes are not at all obvious. The fact that the mother closes her eyes is so calming and probably a once in a life time moment. Superb shot!

    When I was in Catholic grammar school a priest told us animals can't love. That love is an emotion strictly for humans. When I see a picture such as this, I know he was wrong. I can feel the love.
