Plains Zebras in Amboseli NP, Kenya

Even when I took this picture, I thought that it could be called 'the search for water', but it's a false impression - the swamp was immediately behind the vehicle I was in, and the zebra and her foal had drunk their fill and were leaving the source of water!

Zebra with Cattle Egret

Like Elephants, Zebras often have Cattle Egrets hitching a ride. It is advantageous to the egrets to have a high perch from which to watch the insects which the mammal churns up as it walks around.
