ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " Z "



Today is the final letter of our alphabet, the letter " Z ".
At our final letter last go-around I posted Zebras in the zoo.
I said that my final posting this time would be the real thing in real life.



We saw many herds of these beautiful animals on our Kenyan safari.



Though this is a little out of focus since we were riding along the rutted "road".
I love how these Zebras were as curious about us as we were about them.



Don't you just love the amazing patterns of their black and white coats?
Be sure to enlarge each shot to see the landscape more clearly.
Check out Mrs. Nesbitts link on my sidebar to see what others have posted for " Z ".

Sue, Love the design on the face of the zebra looking at you! For being "out of focus," they are remarkably sharp I think - your safari must have been the trip of a lifetime.

Zounds. Love theme.

Wonderful captures and I zebras! Had a couple of those today, too, but I didn't get to take my own shots this time! Have a good week!

I do love the way they show their stripes! Excellent shots - I've never seen one outside a zoo.

Jama said...

We only get to see zebras in our zoo!

Janie said...

Great photos. Not many people get to see zebras in the wild. They do seem curious, much like domestic horses would be.

Zebras are one of my very favorites! I like how they are dressed :).

Hilary said...

Love the pattern of the zebras against the beautiful naples yellow of the grasses.

Rose said...

The more I looked at them, the dizzier I got--I didn't realize how their patterns are almost optical illusions:) What an adventure you had to have seen so many animals in their native habitat!

Carolyn Ford said...

Fabulous captures of the zebras! All those stripes together can make one dizzy! What a trip that must have been.

Paula Scott said...

Lots of z's going around! I love those zebras-how thrilling to see them so close. Kinda cool to get the double duty with zoos too!

Reader Wil said...

Zebras are always fascinating animals and for me they are all identical. Interesting post! Thank you!

very beautiful series

Diederick Wijmans said...

They look wonderful!! Thanks for sharing these with us.

Andy said...

It's amazing how nature reproduces each animal to look the same. I'm not sure if they are white with black stripes or are they black with white stripes.

Great Photos!

Jay said...

Oh, it's always SO much better to see animals in the wild rather than in zoos! Beautiful shots - despite the fact that you shot them from a moving vehicle. I know how hard that is, from our travels across the States!

Kate said...

Wonderful photos! they look so peaceful and beautiful, too.
