Two ghosts.

This fellow seems fairly smitten with birds, or maybe they find him irresistable.
I have this little (2x3 inch) cutout from a magazine that I've saved since I was in high school. It shows a painting of this guy, in black and white. I have long since lost the information about who painted it and who the subject was. Another artist maybe? A naturalist painter? I can't remember. But here is my interpretation of the mysterious painting (or drawing) that I have saved so long. Maybe someone will recognize it.

I like giraffes and thought one would be a good subject for this topic because I had heard that they don't make noise. So I worked away on this and when it was almost finished I did a google search and learned that they aren't so quiet after all.

"Although normally silent, giraffes are not mute. This is a myth. Baby giraffe calves have been reported bleating and making a mewing sound, while adults have been heard to bellow when seeking a lost calf, snort when in alarm and bull giraffes emit a raucous cough during courting. A variety of other assorted giraffe sounds including mooing, moaning, hissing, grunting, whistling, growling and, apparently, flutelike sounds have also been reported."
