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.
I was so happy to see her…so beautiful.
Looks like a very wide river – can hardly imagine it being dry for 15years!! 🙂 **
It is amazing. When I learned that I couldn’t believe it!
An African photo safari is a must for every person with travel bones.
I couldn’t agree more with you Stephen…it was the most amazing trip I’ve been on and I can’t wait to go back.
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.
how wonderful, how amazing to see those thirsty animals, great choice for the Q challenge 🙂
Thanks…I bet they get thirsty out there.
great: the birds’ view to the Zebras, quenching their thirst!
Thanks! We were on a cliff above the river and this was our view outside our tent.
Wow! Love those Zebras!
They are funny and yet graceful creatures.
I’ve featured your Zebras as link to your blog at
I hope, that will support your work!
Thanks! You are so kind! I look forward to this each week 🙂
The zebras are stunning. I would love to see that many together in one group.
It was so cool!
Owww I love the second photo…all those stripes make the river colorful
That is a good way of looking at it!
You are so lucky to have seen these beautiful creatures live. I have to go to a zoo to see them.
It was amazing to see them in their natural habitat.
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!
I know after 15 years of no rain and now the river looks plentiful. What a relief!
It is amazing that you can shot these photos.
It was a wonderful experience. Thanks!
Oh my lovely wild and big cat 🙂 How beautiful moment you captured dear TBM… Thank you, with my love, nia
The lion was so much larger than I thought she would be.

what great shots – love them both and so fitting for Q
such cool captures! thanks for sharing.
Glad you liked them.
I enjoyed both photos immensely – and the radical change in perspective. Very nice! 🙂
Nice shots of the animals at the water hole. I could do with a good Quench – time to put the kettle on!
Tea sounds nice…it is raining here.
Here too 😦
Awesome photos! How wonderful to capture these moments!
I couldn’t believe how many zebras came down the hill.
