No one is perfect

The last week I have seen more giraffes than in all my time as a guide put together. Maybe it’s got something to do with the bit of rain we’ve had and some of the acacias flowering and growing new leaves. I am definitely not complaining as they are one of the animals everyone always wants to see. They just seem to have a certain something about them. They are elegant, graceful and just plain beautiful. With their long legs and perfectly curled eyelashes they are loved by all.

We always look at them and think how perfect they are but like most of us they also have minor flaws…  although they might be pretty but they are quite  smelly, and this goes to show that none of us are really perfect.
