When You're Smiling

Capturing great animal moments is one of my passions. Goofy or not, I love talking to them and I'm convinced they understand us but prefer to ignore! This was taken on a gorgeous early fall day at the Dallas Zoo. We had just arrived at the giraffe exhibit when this guy walked towards us. Once he grew close enough, I hollered, “Smile for us!” This was his response! My son and our friends were speechless. This giraffe played right along and made our day!
