    Is this zebra of the type with black stripes on white or white stripes on black? I cannot tell from this photograph.

    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

    I had a tricolored Border Collier [tan, black and white] when I grew up.

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

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