Q is for Quench

This week’s letter for Frizztext’s A-Z archive photo challenge is Q.  Below you will see animals quenching their thirst.  The lions are drinking from the Chobe River in Botswana and the zebras are drinking from the Boteti River also in Botswana.  In 2008 the Boteti River started to flow again.  It had been dry for more than 15 years.

    First photo is a real queen! Beautiful I love it.

  2. Looks like a very wide river – can hardly imagine it being dry for 15years!! 🙂 **

  3. An African photo safari is a must for every person with travel bones.

  4. Wow. It must have been amazing to see so many zebras at once. I’ve only ever seen one or two at the zoo. Looks pretty cool.

      I was astonished to watch them meander to the water and take a quick drink and then leave. They don’t stay in the water long since there are crocodiles.

    You are so lucky to have seen these beautiful creatures live. I have to go to a zoo to see them.

    I’m sure the animals were glad to see the river flowing again. I love your shots, especially the zebras all standing together. Good job!
