Bug's-Eye View

Photograph by Manoj Shah, National Geographic Your Shot

Zebras gather at the Mara River on the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Your Shot member Manoj Shah, who submitted this photo, managed to capture a unique perspective of the herd. “This photo was taken by a special remote camera, developed so that it could be triggered from a distance. The camera was hidden where the zebras go to drink water and cross to the other side of the river … in a rocky place so that they would behave naturally, without any disturbance. The whole idea was to capture what an insect … would see when in the midst of the herd.”
