Description: A zebra caught in the abstract amidst herd mates

Story from behind the lens: We stopped next to a herd of zebra to scan the horizon and have a sip of coffee when I looked up at the herd and, while squinting against the sun, I saw a wonderful abstract composition of black, brown, blue, green and white. The zebra's eye with just a bit of "catch light" draws you into the abstract composition and the shallow depth of field helps to frame the in-focus zebra between the foreground and background.
