    This is a picture I took a long time ago at a Game Preserve in the Arbuckles.

    There are two types of zebra which accounts for the difficulty you mention. It can only be resolved from a photo if you revert using B&W. Border Collies exhibit the same difficulty. The ones South of Hadrian's Wall(English) are white dogs with areas of black and those North of the Wall( Scottish) are the reverse.

    Yes I know that Hadrian's Wall no longer demarcates the border but no-one told the collies.

    However for a colour photo of a B&W zebra I have to say this is very good

    Nice photo. Was it taken in the Arbuckles in Oklahoma?

    If you subscribed, you could put the pic in the gallery where it belongs.
    Some might say I have a bad attitude! Too bad.

    What did you shoot this with? Curious. It's very tight and clear.

    Not terribly surprising -- he was near the border, after all!

    Something in the range of a 7mm to a 30/06 would be about right.

    Your zebra photograph reminds me of back when I first started shooting 35mm. I went to the St. Louis Zoo and took some animal photographs. My photo of a zebra was of the whole zebra and I really mean the whole zebra. I didn't notice it at the time but when I got my negative printed I realized that the zebra was quite "excited" to get his picture taken.
