Zebra are very common in east Africa. After a while you almost start to ignore them because they are everywhere you go. However, I started to really like them. I’ve always thought that zebra were artful creatures. Seeing thousands of plains zebras in the great migration is really something to witness. I love the way the animals blend together.
This is a little Amargosa Vole that I photographed along the California coast. We seem to be noticing them more often than in previous years. They can dig quite a network of tunnels, and are an important contributor to the food chain. They are quite timid and require some patience and a bit of luck to photograph. It is neat what you find when you slow down a bit and look at the natural details around you.
