The tallest of them all...

I've posted my Girbra many times.  But what else could I pick for the www.illustrationfriday.com  Tall theme.  As everyone knows, Girbras are shorter than Giraffes.  They inherit a zebras short legs.  But with the long neck of a Giraffe they are still pretty darn tall.  Even though I painted this back in 2009 it is still a favorite.  Have you seen a Girbra at your local Zoo?  Well, you better go check...

Haha, that is one silly beast. I hope he's not going to eat the butterfly! I mean, I don't think so, but that's an odd spot to land. Perhaps this Girbra is a very chatty type and the butterfly was making it quiet for a moment. :)
