Paula’s B&W Sunday – Unusual
Oh, that’s a little unusual, a striped-spotted zebra 🙂
Very unusual Kat! 🙂
Indeed it is strange but strange are the ways of nature…it keeps us guessing and keep us surprising with its uniqueness..
True! I think this deviation works! 🙂
Yes! And you’ve got to love their mohawks! 🙂
Oh that’s amusing !! 🙂
Strange certainly 🙂
Beautifully captured! The little dots on the tops makes this zebra look so unique 🙂 I have never seen this type of zebra before 🙂
I searched online and only found only one other report from the recent past Indah! Guessing it is pretty rare 🙂
Who wouldn’t want to be unique? 😉
Ha, especially a female of the species!! Not sure it is a good thing to ‘stand out’ in the wild though 🙂
Nature is always surprising us.
This was a particulalrly lovely surprise Sally 🙂
What a lovely surprise! 🙂 Beautiful animals and well done, Madhu.
Thank you Dina. She was gorgeous in her semi-dappled coat. Her calf seems to have turned out ‘normal’. Or boring? 🙂
A zebra with morse code on its back 🙂
Unbelievable! Thank you for sharing Madhu. This is amazing!!!
Thanks. I saved it for your challenge Paula 🙂

This must be a rare and unusual sighting, Madhu. I have never seen dots before. You were in the right place at the right time.
I have painted them many times – No two are the same, but first time I’ve seen a spotted one 🙂
How unusual! Zebras wee the animal I picked to study and observe during my college zoology class. It took me a while to identify each one by their unique stripes. They really are all so different, but I never saw any with spots!
Unique indeed!!!! 🙂
well I always heard that no two zebras had there same spots – and this is more proof – and I love the grazing feel 🙂
Oh dear, looks like some hanky panky associated with that ancestry. lol
Wow, I wonder how that happened 🙂 you were blessed!
He is beautiful! I am just learning how to Zentangle and this looks like an interesting pattern! 🙂
Unique! Hopefully it doesn’t get excluded or something. But I guess the difference isn’t big enough. Great capture!
Oh, I love this, Madhu! 🙂
Madhu, I’m glad we got to see this thanks to your keen eye! Zebras are such gorgeous creatures – they’ve been my sister’s favourite since a very young age.
I guess nothing is actually too strange for nature?
That is entirely cool! What a great catch.
Oh Id love to see them in the wild so much
nicely spotted 🙂
Ha, I’ve never read that quote until now. It’s the perfect statement for your little polka-dotted friend. Love it.
Such a fun take on Paula’s challenge! Very apt, Madhu (and a lovely photo) 🙂
Absolutely gorgeous! 🙂
