Zebra, Kenya

Photograph by Johan Siggesson, National Geographic Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

From a mayhem of hooves, stripes, and whinnying, suddenly an eye popped up between the manes. Originally set out to take a more abstract image of the zebra herd, I just managed to capture the eye before the moment was gone. For me it serves as a reminder that someone, or something, is always watching.

This photo and caption were submitted to Your Shot. Check out the new and improved website, where you can share and connect with fellow photographers from around the globe.

It feels as if i'm intruding on a private moment.

It's so beautiful, and intimate, and piercing, that I don't want to stop looking at it.

It gives the feeling that he's completely awareof you, in that split second of time.

Needless to say, the picture is beautiful and I Iove it.
