Your compelling action image above is another persuasive example of the value of black & white safari images.

 

Recently @Game Warden urged me to consider that with regard to African buffalo. Your fine image extends that to zebra.

 

Thank you for posting it with the shooting settings.

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So donīt stop shaking the bottle, thereīs a lot inside.

@hubertj I could never imagine that zebras would mourn the death of a member of the herd. I didn't think that they were intelligent enough for that. Of course as we know that is something which elephants do.

@optig - you're probably right. It might be our over-interpretation. But I'm really wondering how this behaviour could be explained.

@hubertj -I do have to say that much about animal behaviors remains unexplained. Mammals and birds are found to be increasingly intelligent. I'm always

astonished how animals can show altruism.

I am looking forward to seeing Mountain zebras later this year in Tswalu Kalahari, and near Cape Town.
