I am flying

Posted by
dobbino (Cape Town, South Africa) on 20 May 2011 in Animal & Insect.

This was taken during the game drive on our first evening at the camp. All was quiet until we approached a group of four, and then the zebra decided to take off. This was just one of the bunch that were there. The zebra is a little softer in appearance due to the bonus of the soft and warm colour imparted by the early evening sun.

I wish you all a fabulous weekend and will see you next week.

Title from the lyrics of the song "I am sailing" sung by Rod Stewart
