Z IS FOR ZEBRA
THE A - Z CHALLENGE
Z has to be for zebras- what else? Enjoy some great pictures of zebras seen at Etosha National Park, Namibia and Kruger Park, South Africa. Zebra are not completely black and white- you'll notice a light brown stripe in between. No two zebra are patterned the same, each uniquely different. It is thought the stripe patterning helps confuse a chasing predator when the herd all run together. And camouflages a zebra standing still in tall grass or scrub: the lion being its main predator being colour blind is less able to see them. There are 3 species of zebra, Burchell's or Plains, Grevy and Cape Mountain Zebra.
The following photos are of Burchell's or Plains Zebra. I reckon zebra are one of the most interesting animals to photograph, no matter how they stand or whichever angle you shoot them from, you still get an amazing pic!
