Zebras in the Thornveld - Plains (Burchell's) Zebras by Russ Heselden
  Zebras in the Thornveld  (2013)
Subject: Plains (Burchell's) Zebras
Dimensions (inches): 14 x 18
Medium: Mixed media on canvasboard (unframed)
Description: Two Plains Zebras grazing peacefully in the late afternoon, on the edge of the Kruger National Park in South Africa. I was fascinated by how the outlines of the animals dissolved against the pattern of whites and blacks created by the dry scrub, and have tried to capture the intense light. From more than 100 yards away, the heat haze made it very difficult to see them at all. Plains Zebras are the commonest and the least threatened of the three Zebra species, and their global population appears to be stable. Nevertheless, civil wars, poaching (in the north of the range) and habitat loss (in the south of the range) have caused significant declines in many areas and even some local extinctions. The Quagga was a subspecies of Plains Zebra: it was extinct in the wild by 1878.
