Undercover Critter

I got home from the shop yesterday and walked the dogs in the mist. It had been raining all day but my two trusty furry friends weren't letting me off the hook. As I'm not made of spun sugar, I leashed them up and off we went.

We were almost at the point of the grassy track where we turn around to come home, when Skabenga gave a low growl. I looked up into the mist  rain and saw a small herd of zebra. We came home, I collected my camera and with the dogs waiting inside the garden, I returned up the slope. The herd was on the horizon and I couldn't go too close else they moved off. 

While taking the very misty photos and trying not to get too much water on my camera, I thought I noticed a "different looking" zebra. When I downloaded the photos, I saw a donkey in the herd. I'm not sure if this donkey belongs here...

  1. Interesting!
    Hope you are having a good week-end!

  2. Lovely photos. I like the mood set by the mist and I've always loved zebras. I wonder where that donkey came from?

  3. OH WOW! The Case of The Donkey Who thought he was a Zebra!!! these are amazing, I want to see a zebra and I love donkeys

  4. Hello Jo! What a cool sighting, to see the zebras in the wild. The donkey is cute too. I am glad you walk with your dogs, Skabenga was great at warning you. Great photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

  5. ha ha...thanks for going back for the camera

  6. The donkey seems comfortable with them. I wonder if it ran away from a farm and linked up with them.

  7. WOW1 that is some mist Jo. I am about to g toMAlawi next week again to visiti judith adn famiy Have a wonderful week ahead.

  8. Seems surprising enough to see the zebras but really unusual to have a donkey hanging out with them.
