A head and three tails

By ColleenA
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.

Wonderful for Sunday, Colleen!
Did you manage a shot of their other ends??

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.

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

Fantastic Colleen! There's something rather symmetrically pleasing about a zebra's bum - I have one in my portfolio somewhere too Wink

Lotsa hind legs too! Maybe shots of bums, but certainly not bum shots, Colleen! Wink V1 is a bit of an optical illusion, as it looks like one zebra with three bums! Blush
