Oddly enough, no. I couldn’t work out what made them do this.

Wow. This shot has a nice little Best Of icon when viewed in your gallery. I agree with whatever higher forum power made that happen.

Do the subjects still stand out in color or does that distract from the drama?

Thanks for the kind comments, George. I think they still stand out in color but I prefer the monochrome. Here's the color version.

. . . I prefer the monochrome.

Me too. Brain knows zebra coats can have red brown dust unless they are fresh from the salon but eye really likes the shades of gray.

Many animals, at certain times of day, just 'get the gallops'.
I've seen that in domestic horses, and our cows and heifers do here.
Quite comical at times.
