Giraffes in the Mist

Yesterday morning, I went to the zoo. I was lucky enough to spot the new baby giraffe, Misawa, just as I got there. Right when the fog was thickest.

What's that he's poking at on the ground? Why, a delicious dead maple leaf!

Something's happening on the other side of the enclosure. I hope he doesn't forget his leaf.

Note that Misawa is just under eight feet tall, and the giraffe in the background is like eighteen feet tall. False perspective!

By the time I reached the far side of the savannah enclosure, I found out where they were headed. The keepers had opened up some fences so they could head back to the giraffe barn. I got there in time to see the little guy pass by. Looks like he still has his leaf!

So cute! Thanks for sharing. :) I can't get over how incredibly awkward his front legs look in the first pic. Wow.
