The stripes on Zebras make them beautiful.. Getting them to look at the camera adds a certain additional level of complication. Finding a symmetric or alternating pattern makes for a great shot. Rather than just shooting photos of animals sometimes you have to wait patiently until something aligns (a pattern). Other times it's about picturing what you want and then waiting until it happens. So much time and so little to do!
This photo has patterns within patterns (note the alternating heads, and the zebra patterns within the composition).
