A tender safari scene, of a zebra mare with her young foal in the midst of scorched African grasslands. The mare stands proud and protective as her foal shelters from the heat of the sun by sitting beneath her. The black and white stripes of the animals are brilliantly rich and sharp, in contrast to the muted tones of the surrounding scrubland. There is a tree in the background and sparse bush in the foreground.
