Its those partying zebras....

Nicely worked photos Colleen, the mono treatment is spot on.

The last image is so sad, it makes me angry and depressed that as a species we can be so inhumane. We do seem to think that we own the planet whereas we actually are only sharing it with everything else.

You and Simon stole my thunder today GrinGrin I was considering uploading a set of Zebra images, not to worry though, they'll wait Grin Don't want a Zebra overload, we'll all be going boss eyed with all the stripes GrinGrin

V1 is with out doubt the leader today, a cracking shot, love the way you've caught the tail in that curl. Great idea to go mono!
V3 is a real kick in the teeth, how very sad. Another devastating blow for conservation
