a zebra herd in Kenya

Zebra, Kenya

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

From a mayhem of hooves, stripes, and whinnying, suddenly an eye popped up between the manes. Originally set out to take a more abstract image of the zebra herd, I just managed to capture the eye before the moment was gone. For me it serves as a reminder that someone, or something, is always watching.
