Mother and young zebra, Etosha National Park, Namibia.

She moved right next to him as we approached, and stood, unmoving, but ready to protect her foal. I love their stances in this, alert and almost identical to each other.

    Beautiful work, I like how the zebras blend right in with their environment.

  • Thanks very much Cora, it’s amazing how well they can hide themselves in their surroundings!

    Brilliant Andrew, great in B+W, you would have to wonder tho, what exactly zebras are supposed to blend with haha!

  • Haha, you know, the strange thing is, they can hide themselves pretty damn well when they want to! Zebras seemed to pop up out of nowhere right in front of us, don’t know who got more scared! :)
