The mesmerizing chiaroscuro of the extremely sociable zebra actually evolved as a deterrent to biting flies. Shot at long range with a mere six (yes, six!) megapixel Sony digital camera at full 5X optical zoom at the African Lion Safari in Cambridge, Ontario. It’s the first drive-through safari I’ve been on, and a very interesting experience. Although, when the ostriches came to personally investigate the cars as they drove through, my brother (the driver) spent that time muttering and praying that they wouldn’t peck the car to satisfy their curiosity.
