Some black and white.

Others, white and black.

Intersecting lines,
converging, merging.
Symbols of diversity.
Hope, for a conflicted world.
Cheers to you from South Africa’s harmonious zebras~

    • Oh I love the roll of the last few comments! It’s a showcase of the creativity and humor of bloggers! And more to the point, I agree, God has to have the best sense of humor in all the universes!! πŸ˜‰


  1. What a beautiful animal. I truly hope man is not poaching & eating them, or selling their skin.
    Cindy, I want all animals to have a safety zone & dignity!


  2. Lovely photos, Cindy! I smiled at your dialogue about black and white vs. white and black…I’ve never been able to decide which color the stripes are supposed to be, because of the diversity πŸ™‚


  3. Fantastic pictures of the amazing Zebra’s Cindy, great pictures, I did go back over them as it does appear they are white with black stripes or vice versa, bit mesmerising.
    Interesting comment by one of your followers, in that he states theyoung can identify the parent by the stripe configuration.
    Enjoyed that post.


    • Apparently the black and white geometric pattern is confusing for the vision of the big cats. I know my camera lens seemed to have problems with it when photographing the herds at full zoom. They started blurring together, looking like one massive confusing creature.


  4. Hmm, I see!! Not retired after all..!!!
    “Here, come lie down on the couch and tell me what you see in the patterns above”…. πŸ˜€
    Just kidding.. beautiful pictures.. Although I have to admit, staring at the first fellow’s snout and “intersecting lines” was like using some exotic Chakra meditation technique.. stare for too long and I will probably tell you my deepest secrets πŸ˜€


    • Laughing, it all hinges on distracting concentration. If you stay focused on what you chose, no one can ever distract your concentration. But, that said, what do you see in the intersecting lines????? Just kidding & cheers to you my friend~

      • Aha, I knew it.. working for the DoD still.. looking for a Manchurian candidate I am sure πŸ™‚
        What I saw in the intersecting lines on the forehead is a doorway (and no other innuendoes there, but an infinite doorway is what I thought. Frightening thought, fear of the unknown).
        Yes, thank you for the kind words. Yes, staying focused is the most difficult thing in the world for frivolous old me. But thank you, those are encouraging words at the moment.

    • Is the bark the sort of clipped warning they do? I have heard them bray.
      You can’t imagine how shocked I was while dozing a bit when we were driving along the California coast soon after returning from our first trip to South Africa and I saw these zebras grazing with cows. I assumed I was dreaming. I said, “Did I just see wild zebras grazing with cows?”
      My husband, who is not a native Californian like me, seemed surprised, I didn’t know about them.
      Hearst imported them in service to his amazing ego and palace. They are thriving so many decades later. Good for them!
