Zebra in Tall Grass

Zebra in Tall Grass, Okavango Delta, Botswana A zebra, sort of hiding in the tall grass of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. It was early in the morning and there was a herd of tsessebe with a few zebra mixed in here and there, no doubt doing their best to stay out of sight of any would be predators.

    Very nice ethereal quality, which one would not expect from such a solid animal as a zebra!

    So lovely and serene. I can only hope we see such a site when we head to South Africa this October! I’ve passed your photos from these areas to our travel mates to remind them of what we hope to find on safari. Thanks for reminding us of the beauty in a harsh land.
