Zebra of My Illusion

No one knows for certain why zebras have such artful, Picasso-esque stripes, but camouflage doesn't seem likely. Inside Cape Town, South Africa's bus depot (the whimsical B&W background in this photo), I thought of the stunning zebra I'd photographed just days before (the one here) on safari at Inverdoorn Game Reserve, thinking this mural would afford him some adaptive camouflage. That led to a Photoshop fantasy. Nature inspires.
