A Word a Week Photography Challenge-Recline


My contribution for this week’s

 Word of the Week Challenge…



Once again I have added Google’s definition of ‘recline’…

maybe because my recliners may be stretching it…just a tad.

Google Definition of ‘recline‘ is to

lean or lie back in a relaxed position with the back supported.’

zebra_0103No need for shade or protection here…

I dare-say relying on its mates to alert it to predators.

    • I spent a fair bit of time looking at that zebra’s rump while framing the picture and did not notice that. As far as I am aware there is only one tail, however, this one has two stripes…it appears. But all zebras are different so this one may be the ‘different’ one.


      • I was thinking how much that rump would make in the sale yards if it belong to one of my sheep or cattle of yesteryear. After your comment I have been viewing rumps (zebra) and they all seem to have two white stripes down their tail, with different horizontal, or black stripes.
