Lost in the Details

Every zebra has a stripe pattern as unique as a human’s thumbprint.

    What a beautiful up close photo of this zebra. Thanks for liking all my recent posts. I’ve been having fun trying out all of the different challenges in the blogosphere.

    Wonderful portrait – we can really marvel at zebras… and their individual stripe design. Came across the family group – the four Cape Mountain zebra at CP reserve last week, and just love the way the stripes form down the spine and meet at the top of the tails. 🙂

      The stripes on the mountain zebras are gorgeous, we agree! Unfortunately this side of the country we have to visit one of the zoos to see them but we were very pleased to have had good sightings of them when we travelled down to Karoo and Mountain Zebra Parks! It was surprising how well they blended in with their rocky, dry surroundings.

    I like this. Not just because it’s beautiful, but because what it’s doing is so natural, and something that’s so understandable…different than how we do it, but same in principle. I dig things that remind us that we’re all part of the animal kingdom. Thanks, it’s a gorgeous shot.

      Thank you very much for the positive contribution! We agree, and that’s probably one of the reasons why we get away to the wilds so often; to feel part of something pure and simple – the complete opposite of the mad rush our day-to-day human lives have become.

      Thank you very much TSC! Zebras are definitely photogenic and it is fascinating to watch their social interactions in the herd. Unfortunately visitors to our reserves often don’t pay them a second glance because they are relatively numerous, not overly dangerous, and so familiar I suppose, being on the menu of all the large carnivores that feature in the block-buster wildlife documentaries… Poor zebras!

      Thank you very much Joey! I really appreciate zebras as photographic subjects – the contrasting black and whites seems to work in favour of good, sharp images every time.
