Some real Stripes Stars! Stars and Stripes!

Dina said...

They are slightly different, just like fingerprints.
Pretty zebras, from either end.

This is superbe! Made me a little dizzy, but other than that... ;-)

Cute butts and lovely composition.

I love this shot JM. I have one very similar to it sitting on the bookcase in my office. I even found a simulated zebra skin frame for it.

Susan said...

Ummm, wow. What a wonderful shot. Motion without motion. Cool.

Honest Abe said...

All with no toilet paper in the place. spotless. real nice read ends.

Kay said...

This great shot vibrates with motion! The stripes on zebras are all unique, like human fingerprints. No two are alike. I understand that they are truly nasty animals, not at all like horses.

Oh, the best laugh of the morning, JM! I do love those striped butts and great legs!! Fun delightful capture for the day! Thank you!!

I had to laugh at Sharon's comment - because I too have a zebra's, uh, "behind" picture taken at the Frankfurt (Germany) zoo a long time ago!!!

This shot made me smile - thank you!

VP said...

This is a masterpiece of creativity and eye, with the kind cooperation of the the zebras... Bravo!

Jack said...

HAH! I love it. This isn't a shot I would have thought to take.

Definitely like individual fingerprints. But how often to we have the chance to verify this idea? Thanks for the opportunity and the laugh.

Babzy said...

Halcyon said...

This is one of your best ever. Such a creative shot. You should frame it. :)

Nature creates such beauty.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Brilliant perspective JM, although the zebra on the right's tail looks like it's moving, hope you got out of the way pronto haha!
