The Burchell's Zebra (Equus burchelli) is also know as Plains Zebra. It is one of the characteristic large mammals that one may see when visiting game parks in much of southern Africa. The images shown here were taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark II and EF 500 mm F/4 L IS lens in January, 2006. These shots were taken in Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga Province, South Africa.
