17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Peter Pan

Traditionally, darkness represents sadness, ignorance, and fear, while light represents happiness, knowledge, and courage. In order for a shadow to exist, light and darkness must both be present. Once Peter's shadow is attached to him, it does not come to life until the lights are turned on. This plains zebra was walking across the grass land of the Masai Mara in the early morning hour. The low sun is casting a phenomenal shadow across the low grass land.
