14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Clay Covered Zebra in Tanzania

This photo is of a Zebra along the outer rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, near Kuratu, Tanzania. We were on safari in Tanzania and ventured into the fertile Ngorongoro Crater, said to be one of the natural wonders of the world. As we began our descent we were met by a large group of Zebra, covered in red clay thanks to the trucks that had passed by all morning.
