Zebras are wild equines native to southern and eastern Africa. Famous for their stripes, it has been said that no two are alike.
This mountain zebra, one of the three species of zebras, stopped and looked my way from a ridgeline in central Namibia.
These three are plains zebras, the species I saw frequently in Botswana. A “dazzle” is the name for a group of zebras and these animals do dazzle with their dramatic stripes and their powerful bodies. I actually think the zebra on the right might be pregnant.
A trio of plains zebras blend into this Botswana landscape.
Is this zebra love?
I wonder what these plains zebras are talking about. Is it a serious topic?
Excellent treatment of monochromatic subjects.
. . . and, I know what they are talking about:
“Don’t you think these stripes makes our butts look big?”
Probably something like that :-).
Gorgeous shot, Pam. Zebras are a perfect animal for monochrome. Love the shot with the termite mound. 🙂 Maybe more safaris are in our future…
Thank you, Jane! Are you considering a safari? I’d love to hear about your plans.
Hi Pam, Not at the moment, but we had a fantastic safari trip in 2005. Botswana and SA. Would love to go back someday.
Thank you very much!
