Giraffe Chasing a Butterfly (Video)

Once this adorable baby giraffe spots a butterfly at the Bronx Zoo, he immediately takes off and follows it amongst the trees. The baby giraffe runs in circles after it, but gives up after a couple of seconds because he realizes that the butterfly is too fast for him. He eventually comes to a halt and continues with what he was previously doing with his mother.

I think the Giraffe was inspired by the butterfly to exercise a little at the same time...

I'm not sure if he was chasing the butterfly, but seeing it inspired a moment of sheer joy in him. How do people ever lose this sense of awe and wonder as they mature? It's a pity.
