15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Eye of the Zebra

I was sleeping in my land rover parked under the shade of an acacia tree. A zebra had slowly approached the car and was busy grazing. I woke up and quickly reached for the camera with the telephoto lens. The startled zebra looked at me on hearing the sound of the clicking shutter. I managed to take a picture before the animal bolted away.
