    Happy Birthday to Chutney, Hazel, new baby Giraffe and Miss Jillian!!!!All adorable girlie girls!!! May you ladies have many many many many many more Happy Birthdays to come!!! and....Razzle and Snickers, learn to share cuties!!! Congrats to Miss Willow. I love all these adorable animals so much. Loved the videos!!!

    1. @Lee- Thank you for your comment full of love for the Friends!

  3. Thanks for the wonderful photos as always. I was especially moved watching the baby giraffe. So beautiful and such a contrast to the stomach-churning sadness the Copenhagen zoo has produced. All giraffes, babies and adults, are such wonderful animals and need to be cherished. - anonymous Joanne, because its easier to post that way.

    1. @Anonymous/Joanne - Thank you for your comment. ... Glad you liked the photos! Part of the joy of taking them is sharing them, so I'm glad when I get the time to and am happy others enjoy them! ... YES on the giraffe calf! She came at a much needed time. She is a joy!
