Zebra in Black n White Shades: A Wildlife Photo Essay

I am generally not a big fan of taking wildlife pictures in monochrome, but when it comes to the zebra, I tend to take more black and whites than color photographs. The white coat and the black stripes of the zebra ensures that one doesn’t lose any detail while creating the frame and hence monochromes seem very appealing.

Here are some monochrome shots of the common (Plains) Zebra that I took at Lake Nakuru National Park and at Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya.What do you think of these black and white shades? Do you think it fits the zebra well?
