... hmmm ... it's puzzling why i decided to post this under the puzzle theme ... maybe because i'm truly amazed by the spots and how they puzzle together so perfectly on a giraffe ... or maybe because the girly-girls were puzzled as to why the brand new baby giraffe was not in view ... or maybe ... just because ... i wanted to.

What amazes me is how God managed to create so many different animals, or other creatures and beings and still keep them all separate and distinguished in their own rights, and (mostly) stay beautiful in their design.

Now, that's the most distinctive shot of a giraffe I've ever seen. (It IS a giraffe, isn't it?)
