Two zebras wrangling with each other. it was not a very serious fight, but rather a playful squabble in which one kept on trying to bite the others ears or heels, like an annoying little sibling, perhaps.
A group of zebras posed beautifully on top of a hill. Zebras often live in harems of one stallion with up to six mares. So there may be space for more in this group!
Zebra family portrait
A mother zebra and her young, in the early morning light against a black background. What a nice family portrait! (If I may say so myself…)
At mother’s side
A baby zebra seeking the safety and comfort of her mother’s side. I love the stripes on stripes!
Such a cute little baby zebra!
I was surprised to see so many baby animals in Pilanesberg last week, since winter is coming soon. But I guess that for now there is enough food to be had from the long grass.

“Just living is not enough…
one must have sunshine,
freedom, and a little flower.”
Hans Christian Andersen
Rietvlei at the moment is so amazingly beautiful! The fields are green and purple and yellow… all the colours of an enchanting summer. This young zebra obliged for a portrait in front of a field of purple flowers. The animals don’t really seem to like the flowers, though, they prefer their grass to be green!
