Good morning......
Thank you for sharing my horror yesterday with the senseless killing of elephants for their ivory...

Today's image is of a dazzle of zebra's..I had not noticed at the time of capturing it that the one head had blended in so well with the other bodies....an optical illusion...the second one is a bit of a bum shot....thought both appropriate for Silly Sunday
Enjoy your day

Good addition to your bottom drawer, Colleen.
I see a great future for your subjects - modelling pyjamas.

All your pictures of wild animals are absorbing to us who live in a tamed land.
Great stuff.

Very well taken captures with a lot of detail, with the depth of field/focus you have captured using F5/6, I'm guessing you were a reasonable distance away from the subjects. The sharpness of this image is very good.
Kindest Regards, Burnsie

At first glance it did look like an extra long zebra. Perfect and not behind any of the other Silly Sunday shots. Grin
