The Egret’s Takeoff (Part II)

Ahh, I figured out why this particular pose looks so strange — in this position, the egret looks like the angel of a chicken crossed with a giraffe!

Gerry the Giraffe

leave a comment »

Gerry the giraffe is a long time resident of the Long Island Game Farm. We’ll overlook that he’s a summer person giraffe, and hope that his hoof has recovered sufficiently for him to return this year (last year he had to summer at his winter residence in Tennessee, I believe).

I like to think that his expression in this photograph is his way of asking me, “Isn’t a hundred pictures enough?”

The Goat at the Game Farm

leave a comment »

One of my favorite places to go in the summer is the Long Island Game Farm. I even had my 8th birthday party there! Walking around there is a great way to spend a day, from stretching your neck to see Gerry the Giraffe, to walking around in the deer enclosure, to feeding eager baby goats from a bottle. This little guy was one of the latter, and after he had dispensed with his meal, decided he had an inch to scratch.
