[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On a recent visit to Pilensberg National Park, these two Burchell’s Zebra kept me entertained for about ten minutes, chasing each other around in circles at full speed. Once they were tired out I managed to get this shot.
Burchell’s Zebra is a subspecies of the Plains Zebra and in 1918 thought to be extinct when the last “known” one died in the Berlin Zoo. However following expeditions into Africa they were found, not only to be still living in the wild, but thriving in the areas of Etosha and Kwazulu Natal

Hi Patrick,
Seeing your photo as a thumbnail I just had to open it. A Perfect capture my friend. The details are perfect in clarity, white balance to perfection, natural colours splendid and placing of your objects excellent. Well done.
Best regards,
See my Black Zebra photographed in the Etosha National Park.
