Zebra - Black and White
A Burchell's Zebra close-up in monochrome. Shadows, lines and light ... a natural photograph subject to say the least. This animal was photographed in the complete wilds, although it might be hard to belief. Once animals get accustomed to humans, it is rather easy to approach them without harm to anyone.
With every Zebra having unique lines and patterns, it is a subject that can almost never be re-created. And that is wonderful.
Burchell's zebra is a southern subspecies of the plains zebra. It is named after the British explorer and naturalist William John Burchell. Common names include: Bontequagga, Burchell's Zebra, Damara Zebra, and Zululand Zebra .
Burchell's zebra is the only sub-species of zebra which may be legally farmed for human consumption in the UK.
