In this fine art photograph, you see three zebras in a dust cloud surrounded by the magical colors of the African sunset. The three zebras stand with their heads perched up and ears open, on the lookout for any danger.

Two zebras stand in the foreground to the right. In the same direction looks a solitary zebra, behind the two animals. Behind the pair of zebras are glowing the vibrant colors of the sunset, orange and red, in the cloud of dust.

Undoubtedly that creates a warm atmosphere. The dynamic and magical colors are getting brighter further in the distance. Indeed together with the uneven ground, it almost looks like the waves of an ocean. The misty cloud of dust adds to the warm feeling of this colorful African scenery. Yet still extremely beautiful in the superb brilliant colors of the African sunset.

If one of these three zebras spots any sign of danger, it makes a high-pitched sound to alert the others. They also make a snorting, barking, and braying sounds. They have developed smart strategies to defend themselves against predators. Firstly, they do not possess horns like antelope.

Therefore, they use their hind legs to kick predators and fight other threats. Secondly, they also use the striped patterns of their skin to distract predators. When a predator attacks, they all stick together, and their combined patterns will confuse the predator. Discover all our zebra photographs.
