Plains Zebra (Equus quagga)
Kruger NP, Limpopo, South Africa

I like to try black-and-white for Nature photography, and if there is an animal for which such an option is particularly adequate, it is the Zebra, with its striped pattern of strongly contrasting black and white. This photo was taken on a sunny morning, in a path in Kruger’s National Park. Among the 15 to 20 Plains Zebras in this group, these three remained calm in the middle of the path I was following.
