4 zebras

Hi everyone. Apologies for my absence over the last month or so. I’ve been away to Carnarvon and catching up the backlog of work since returning to Perth. All up and running again now! Here’s a pick of a few zebra finches taken whilst up in Carnarvon. There were some massive flocks of these little critters and I managed to get 4 to stay still long enough to get a shot of them. The ones with the orange cheeks are males and ones without are females. Hope you like it.

Cheers Dave
