[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at the end of the day, on the Serengeti. According to my tour guide, Andrew Mwemba, Zebras have very strong legs and very weak backs. Although they are distant relatives of the horse, they cannot be tamed. The only way a lion can kill a zebra is to jump on his back. A zebra's best defense is kicking. I have heard that more zoo keepers are injured by zebras than all the other animals combined. If you see someone riding a zebra in a movie, it's really a horse that's been painted. A zebra's stripe pattern is like a snow flake or a fingerprint; no two zebras are alike.

I know the sky in this photo is overexposed, but I like the backlight on the zebra family just as it is. Cropped, enhanced and resized in Photoshop.
