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.

Super shot and composition in V1, nice eye contact in 2 and a really sick testimony to human cruelty and greed in V3.

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
30 Jan 2014 7:29AM
Beautiful animals. Simon has uploaded the face and next to it the backend is yours. I can't look at v3 it would make me too sad. How cruel people are.
Best wishes patty

Two cracking Zebra images but a sad one for V3. It must be distressing living in SA to read about these horror stories everyday. In the UK we hear very little about the plight of these wonderful animals.

V1 is an excellent image in mono Colleen, v3 is so sad to read, it's time the Chinese Government and others cracked down and operated a zero tolerance to poachers and people who buy the goods from them.
