Zebras at the Zoo in ABC Wednesday

We have finally arrived at Z for the third time. Searching through my hard disks I found these two Zebras in the Zoological park in Kritsiansand, Norway which we visited in 2007.

Zo, what iz the next thing in ztore for uz? ;-)



Today's post is my entry in the third round of ABC Wednesday, the meme initiated by Denise Nesbitt.

Zebras were the first thing to come to my mind for the "Z" post, but i don't have any zebra pictures. Your picture is great.

LOL! Great choice, first zebras in 2009! Wonder if there will be anymore coming along!

Beautiful animals. They seem to have great interest in the bird.

Reader Wil said...

Hi Rune, there's always a Z to be found. New Zealand, Zealand ( Sjaelland in Denmark) and in Dutch it would have been very easy: zon, zee, zand = sun, sea, sand. Your zebras are perfect!

Zebraene var et godt valg. En tur i dyreparken skaffer jo mange bokstaver til ABC Wednesday rundene. =o) *skynder seg til Kristiansand*

Zebra's are always great to photograph, I will have to photograph some so I never get stuck on Z!

Granny Smith said...

Two "z"s with one shot! How clever!

Miss_Yves said...

Zebras are beautiful animals!

Liz said...

I don't know why zebras are so much stranger than tigers but they are!

Ida said...

To ztripete Z'er. ;)
Mange fine motiver i dyreparken også ja.
Så du har vært med i tre runder så langt.
Det er bra.
Man må sette fantasien i sving gjennom (nesten) hele alfabetet.
Grave litt ekstra i bildearkivet og i tankenboksen.
Utfordrende og gøy.
Blir det en fjerde runde på deg da?

I looked for zebras but none existed in my hard disks nor the mountains of the Rockies either.
Beautiful animals.

Babooshka said...

If there are nay Zebras in the widllife park here thaey were hiding. Gorgeous new babies.

Rinkly Rimes said...

As you say 'Zo?' I'm happy to continue with the alphabet but then, of course, it's easier for a poet. I don't have to go looking; I just un-Zip my head!

Anne-Berit said...

Virkelig en flott Z fra deg.Rakk ikke å bli med i dag.

esnorway said...

Dulce said...

Beautiful zebras. I'm glad you have them waiting for this moment. :-)

Barbara Martin said...

I like most of the African animals, and zebras are one of my favourite equines. Those zebras are really well fed.

I love your zebras! I searched high and lo thru my zoo pictures for a zebra and I couldn't find any! Have a wonderful week!

kikamz said...

this would have been a very great addition to my Zoo animals. too bad i missed them on my zoo visits. one day just isn't enough to see all the animals!

spacedlaw said...

Those zebras look like they are going after the gull!

raf said...

Not one, but TWO zebras! Must say, Rune, not what I was expecting for Visual Norway :)
Gotta love it!

ArneA said...

Dropper ut av dette nå
Bestemt meg for å blogge det JEG vil og ikke det alle andre forventer på spesielle dager.

I didn't see any zebras at Blackpool zoo but it was too wet to go searching.

A very fine pair they are. Hopefully we can begin another round for ABC - they have always been fun!

PERBS said...

Love zebra photos -- they really stand out. I got one at the zoo a few years back and was really taken with it. Great ending to your third round! I only did it once.

Zebras and zoos are very popular this week! I'm amazed at the quality of the zebra pics though, yours included!
