Olympus E520, 1/250, f5.6
Zebra (Equus quagga) can be absolutely hilarious to observe, rolling and romping in the dust as well as possessing the comical ability to pull faces a comedian would die for. With her face grimace, it appears this female is trying to present somewhat of an aggresive stance. The ears generally are the give away, with ears flattened back indicating that serious business is afoot as oppossed to a more submissive stance indicated by ears forward.
If I remember right, this mare was simply trying to mix it up with another mare…definitely not being taken too seriously by our subject on the left!
With early morning light highlighting her of so unfeminine facial hair, this poor girl on the left just looks like she needs a fly swatter to deal with the pest behind her, and a coffee to help her start her day…before going and taking a shave.
