STRIPES

imageNo, I didn’t have to use a telephoto lens to take this picture. In fact, my subject is just two feet in front of me curiously staring into my camera lens. This friendly zebra is one of the more than 1,000 animal residents at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Dallas, Texas. The park is a 1,800-acre center where animals roam freely and visitors drive their own vehicles through rolling hills and grasslands. As my brother-in-law drove us through the preserve, this zebra came up to my side of the vehicle, gamely posed for the camera then stuck its head inside the car.  My sister and nephews went wild petting the zebra while feeding it with food bought at the park’s ticket center. This park reminds me of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Safari, except here you get to drive your own car, roam at your own pace and feed the animals.
