Zebra close up

    Newer Older

    Close-up of zebra at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center and preserve near Glen Rose, Texas. Hand-held shot with Canon F-1n with 80-200FD lens; exposure was probably f/4 around 1/125. Fuji 100 slide film, hi-res scan by service bureau (yes, I can be old school).

    Zebra had just taken the bribe.
    (It helps to have a bag of their favorite food treats available from the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center entrance facility.)

    This "snapshot" photo won a first place AND best of show ribbons - beating out my week-long setup of the Threat and Desire - Calico Cat and Goldfish watching the fish.

    ...Sometimes it's just better to be lucky than smart.
