Max swung through the trees dodging various branches. He stopped briefly in one tree enjoying the view where the trees thinned out onto the plains.
"Do you mind? I was just about to eat that leaf." Two eyes peered at him through the leaves.
"Sorry," Max said and stepped over. "I'm Max."
"Geordie," the giraffe replied in between bites of the leaf.
Max chatted while Geordie ate, telling him about his favorite parts of the forest to swing through.
Geordie smiled at Max then looked up. A few large leaves on a high branch gleamed in the sunlight. "Those tall leaves are extra tasty, but they are too high even for me."
"But not for me," Max said and swung upwards then scampered up the tree. He plucked the leaves and swung back down the Geordie's head. "Here you are."
"Why thank you." Geordie took the offered leaves and started eating them. While he did Geordie told Max about his heard and some of the best places he liked to eat
