A photographer from India has captured the moment a pair of zebras seemed to share a head as they stood together in Kenya creating a striking optical illusion.   

The animals, part of a herd of around 80 others, huddled so close together as they scanned the area for predators that their heads appear to fuse.

Photographer Sarosh Lodhi, 45, captured the ‘zebra total eclipse’ on camera while on a trip to the Maasai Mara reserve, a 938 square-mile stretch preserved savannah wilderness that is also home to lions, cheetahs, elephants, wildebeest and hippos.

Mr Lodhi said: ‘Mother nature never fails to mesmerise her admirers. This pose is such a beauty and am glad I could capture it. It just needed some timing and luck as a photographer, the rest was managed by nature. I am completely delighted by the results.’
