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
