Sibling rivalry


I made a trip to the zoo Friday morning hoping to get a few shots before the summer heat made zoo walking impossible.  I found these young zebras engaged in a friendly battle.

There was a lot of biting, jumping and battering involved but, they appeared to be having a good time.

It kind of made me think of my very early childhood when my sisters and I would engage in some hand to hand combat that sometimes ended with bite marks on one or the other.

Well, these are horses of a different stripe. Cute. But I find it hard to believe that you sisters would actually fight! Really? :)

That first one confuses the heck out of me.

Reminds of a favourite song when I was a child: the horse in striped pyjamams

Children will be children.

Nice shot of the zebra!
I don't remember any fighting and biting. Yelling and screaming, but no fighting.

I love it. I miss sitting at the tomb in Papago park at lunchtime to watch the Giraffes.

Great photos, nor have I seen a zebr's stomach before!
It must have been fun watching them. Re. our photos about Art in Bloom, I surfed back on you blog and did see the one you liked, and I agree that it is outstanding. Contemporary may have been difficult to interpret but your and my florist in the shows did a splendid job on each one!

They look like they are having fun, in a violent kind of way!

The one thing that I like about Zebras is that they don't like cigarettes.
