ABC Wednesday—Z is for "zebra"

No, I haven't been on safari (or even
to the zoo).  This is one of the wonderful
dioramas at The Museum of Natural History.
When I was a kid, I thought it was just
like being right there on the African plain.

  1. Great diorama of the zebras for Z week. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

  2. My great-great grandfather was an artist and he used to do, among other things, the backgrounds for panoramas in the Harrisburg, Pa. State Museum. --Have you read The Veldt by Ray Bradbury? He is my favorite writer... Now by email I'm sending you the story.

  3. Perfect choice for Z!! love zebras, also in a diorama :)

    Z is for...

  4. I love dioramas. I can just feel the warmth of the sun on its ear flicking away flies.

    Dioramas are not always just of fauna and ancient societies. There is one I know of that represents humanity in the 22nd century (if we are not very, very careful. And when have we ever been?).

  5. Nice photo! Love how you framed it.

  6. A dream vacation to see Zebra!!

  7. Great shot - they have this type of thing at Disneyland.
