We came across this scene. A rare one indeed. A group of zebra drinking while being watched but not chased away by 3 bull elephants. They did chase them eventually.
Two of the male zebra got into a disagreement shortly after this and had a full go at each other. I was lucky to be at the right place at the right time and shot a series of photos. The best of the series…
It shows the explosive power and agility of these normal docile animals. Each photo looks ominous, yet not one ended in a “hit” as the other animal managed to move or pull away in time.

Stunning photography. I especially liked the last photo.
Thanks, they put up a real show.
Fantastic series with the battling zebra! All the photos are really wonderful, but I especially like the watering hole with the zebra and elephant, a rarity, and also a great size comparison.
We who know..pick that..because it is rare.
Thanks, lucky shot.
Incredible shots! Power indeed!
Schitterende en spectaculaire foto’s!!
These are wonderful photographs
Thank you for sharing
Best to you
Wow! That was quite a zebranic fight 😀
We saw so many zebra during the safari last year – never get tired of looking at them and their magnificent stripes!!!
Yes, always interesting.
nice shots !!!
Thanks..did you stop blogging?
no ofcourse not but I had to start a new blog as I can’t acces my other blog, it’s a long story but now my blog is called :gwenniesgardenworld
Okay, got ya again! Thanks.
Amazing shots. The contrast between the elephants and the zebras around the watering hole is a rare find indeed. You couldn’t have asked for a better composition. I love the action shots, especially the third one.
Thanks, yeah…Fun stop.
Amazing photography — even more amazing, the fact that you were there to observe these very special scenes!
Thanks..swiftly the time passes…Fun captured moment.
Incredibly beautiful shots! Have considered submitting to a wild life photo contest? Truly outstanding photography!
Superb pictures.Magnificent battle of rhe 2 zerbra’s
Fantastic to watch…agile, fast.
Great shots of these gorgeous critters!
Beautiful shots! That must have taken a lot of focus to keep taking photos vs just watching this tale.
Watching through the lens…Thanks
these are truly are wonderful……..so very envious right now 🙂 . I have never seen Zebra fight so, I assumed they probably did, but I have never seen it. Great images too!
It is rare to see them go at it, Julz, but round mating time things do get interesting.
Wow! Fantastic opportunity & fantastic photos! 🙂
Thanks, yes, right place and time.
WOW WOW WOW!!! What great shots! Zebras are my favourite animal – I even have one tattoo’d on my shoulder – and I love watching them whenever I’m able to get out to the bush… but I can honestly say that I have never seen them fight!
This truly is a rare sighting, and you most certainly were in the right place at the right time!
Thanks, guess you’re gonna look at them with new eyes…Hehehe.
Amazing photos. Thanks for sharing.
