Background

As the zebras cross a dry riverbed, the dust in the air creates a colorful sunset spectacle. The vibrant orange and red tones of the sunset colors add an incredible feeling of warmth to that fine art photograph. The last zebra is flicking up its tail, looking to the right until it follows the herd back into the thick bush in the far distance.

There are many different species and subspecies of zebra. Their patterns, sizes, and even colors can all differ. Furthermore, the white stripes can also be a cream color, and the black stripes can also be brown. Some strips are pale and shadowy, and others are dark and defined. In this photograph, as the zebras cross the dry riverbed at sunset, the animals appear as silhouettes. Interestingly, there are a few mutations amongst the species as well. Some contain spots, and others are so pale that they look almost entirely white. Moreover, there is even an extinct species of zebra, called the quagga, that had a stripy head and a stripe-free butt.

Plains zebras are the most numerous out of all the wild members of the horse family. They roam across much of southeastern Africa. They have a lot of subspecies and have a lot of variation amongst coats. Mountain zebras and plains zebras both live in groups containing one stallion and a few mares.
