Z/Alphabe-Thursday

Zebra in an Ontario field - last summer

It's not often that we see zebras when we're on a road trip here so SCREECH! Yep my husband backed up so I could take this photo. The zebra is one of a few here, part of a small zoo near Tiny Marsh, Ontario.

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

Bardzo lubię oglądać te śliczne "konie w paski" . Pozdrawiam.
I really enjoy watching these beautiful "horses with stripes." Yours.

Nice, it seems like it has a large space to wander.

Sandra said...

great shot, i would have screeched to. the tires and me. i like the way you showed the flowers and green at the bottom, makes him stand out more.

Kathy said...

Definitely a slam-on-the-brakes moment! I've had that experience with a zebra once this year.

Judy @ daily yarns said...

I would have hit the breaks too. I can't say I've ever seen one.

TexWisGirl said...

lots of stripes here in zebra and fencing. :)

JM said...

Quite surprising over there indeed! :-)

Gillian Olson said...

A surprising site, I would have braked and backed up too. Thanks for the ZZZZZ's.

Lowell said...

I'm glad that you have a zebra, too. You may remember we found a bunch on a local farm some time ago but now they've disappeared.

Are you having problems getting the updated City Daily Photo thingy to load? It's not worked well for a long time for me.

Indrani Ghose said...

Cool, you could frame it.

LONDONLULU said...

Haha, it was a screech-worthy stop and terrific photo! I like the idea of a sudden zebra in Canada:)

Stephanie said...

Cool shot!

RedPat said...

Wow - not your usual Ontario wildlife shot!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I love all the patterns layered on top of each other.

Great Z post! One of my neighbors has a zebra and I just shake my head for about ten minutes every time I see it!!

It's really cute though!

What a beautiful zebra! Great Z post..

George said...

We once saw a camel in a field on a farm near my parents' house. I imagine I hit the brakes as quickly as your husband did when you spotted the zebra.

Esther Joy said...

I love those kind of surprises! I am blessed - My husband is a pretty good sport about stopping for shots also.

Jamie said...

Good shot! I would have stopped too.

Nancy Claeys said...

Wow! Maybe you need a bumper sticker that says "I break for Zebras!" Lol.

PS -- I would never delete my blog. Too many great memories recorded there. :)

eileeninmd said...

Wow, I would have stopped too! I've only seen zebras at the zoo.

Jenn Jilks said...

A zebra????? I'd have been surprised and schrreched to a halt, too!
Cheers from Cottage Country!

edenhills said...

What a great discovery to simply stumble upon!

Randy said...

I would not have expected to see this. You never know.

Jim said...

Hi Ms. E.G.T.Guide -- I looked for a zebra and couldn't find one. Not even a toy. So I used another idea for my "Z's" today.

You just reminded me of a word where the Brits actually do use the letter "Z". But they mispronounce Zebra, saying instead, Zeabra (rhymes with lead paint).

VBR said...

Every little zebra's markings are unique to him. Juat like human fingerprints!

Lovely little guy here!

Now that's the coolest! I mean, you're driving along and spot of all things a zebra. =D I just love this!

Viola said...

Oh! a ZEBRA!! I guess that's not often.. ;) but in a zoo then.. :)

Gattina said...

What a nice picture and good idea for Z ! Not an easy letter !

storybeader said...

S/he is so cute! And that's a tall fence! Zebras must be good jumpers... {:-Deb

Snowcatcher said...

I'd have been screeching brakes for that, too! Even if it was a zoo!

Scudds Harrison said...

Aaah! You did not had me read a beautiful post but, you virtually took me to a very beautiful place to wander.

All Z-zebra best,
Scuddz
