Zebras in the Serengeti ~ An Adventure

By
Real Estate Agent with Key Properties of the Hudson Valley NYS DRE #40BO1055114

Up Close with Nature

 

Zebras love to pose for the camera.

Who knew? 

Last January I had the privilege of traveling to Africa with my daughter Kathleen. Her day job brings her to Uganda quite often and she had been advocating for an adventure to coordinate with one of her work trips. This year was the year that we made it happen. A week long Safari in Tanzania. My only regret was that I didn't take this journey sooner. What an adventure to see animals in their natural surroundings.

 Zebras by Janis Borgueta

After sorting through all the photos I took on Safari, it was really quite hard to decide which animals were my favorite. I will say, the Zebras definitely showed an affinity for having their pictures taken. They were always engaging and looking right into the camera. My photos included lions, cheetah, elephants, monkeys, hippos, rhinoceros, wildebeest and oh so many others.

This photo is entered into the contest for Dick Greenberg in the Real Life Animal Category.

Fantastic picture! I don't think the zebras are posing. I think they're sizing you up to determine if you are going to charge at them and eat them for dinner.

A trip of a lifetime and a Nat Geo moment, worthy of that magazine! So lucky that your daughter prompted you to do this. (I'm jealous as hell...)
