Both species are beautiful, Andy. Interesting to see the difference.
 
Brilliant double capture of these two Zebra species with a terrific narrative explaining their status and differences. Fantastic Andy! TFS!
 
Thank you. Until I saw them, I thought a zebra was a zebra and didn't realise that there were different species.
