Zebra Portrait
This portrait of a Burchell’s zebra (Equus quagga) was taken some years ago in the Kenneth Stainbank Nature Reserve, a small, semi-urban wildlife sanctuary within the greater Durban area on South Africa’s east coast.

It was the second-last shot I took, quite late in the afternoon, so the lighting was from the side and back, putting much of the background in shadow. The result is a pleasing rim-light along the zebra’s mane and around its ears.

Camera was a Canon Digital Rebel (EOS 300D) fitted with a Canon EOS 80-200mm F2.8 zoom lens at focal length of 110mm; shutter-speed was 1/1000 at aperture of F8.
