Photo Thursday: Be Sure to Look Both Ways!

(Last Updated On: June 26, 2022)

Sometimes when I’m out on a game drive and various wild animals are wandering along, across and down the road, I wonder if they have any sense that a vehicle could actually be dangerous. Some of them don’t even seem to realize we are there. Most just give us a baleful glance that seems to say “not a lion” before going back to grazing or preening or whatever they were doing before we came by.

Thus, it was funny to see this giraffe stand and the side of road (considering the options?) before carefully looking both ways (a long look our direction, as if debating whether or not we would stay put) and venturing out on to the pavement.


These were taken in September at the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Reserve in South Africa.
