Thank you for critiquing my photos.
Furthermore a Happy Easter if you are celebrating.

These are two zebras I photographed in South Africa's wilderness, more specific in Kruger National Park.

Yesterday's post should have been a bit sharper in my opinion;-). Well...

Bonjour Annick,

Cette prise est magnifique,la perspective est parfaite et la compo est originale.

Merci pour le partage.

Hi Annick,

Very well done, this group portrait with a bird! (The left zebra: "Darling, why don't you use these new epilators, just try!") Thank you,


Splendida composizione ricca di elementi tutti ben equilibrati, eccellente nitidezza e bellissimi colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hi Annick, Nice composition here. This could be called Two Zebra and a Bird. :-) How funny. Good exposure and the Zebra patterns are a riot. TFS Richard

Hi Annick!

Very impressive composition here! Also you managed to get both heads in focus. The patterns of black on the right Zebra is intresting!

Now... is a Zebra black with white stripes... or white with black stripes? :)

Well done and TFS!

I think you are a great animal "portraitist". I don't know if this is what you are trying to do,make superb portraits of the animals, but this is what I see and enjoy most in your pictures. Beautiful!

Yes Annick, I am celebrating Easter - thank you.
It is lovely to see these 2 friends together. I like these type of Zebras with their narrow black stripes. Our zoo has some that have black, white and brown stripes - so different from these. I will post one tonight.
I would love to see them out in the wild, but our only hope is to see them in a zoo

Hallo Annick,
Prachtige foto met veel aandachtspunten die de moeite waard zijn. Vooral de nieuwsgierige blik van de rechter zebra als de Roodsnavelossenpikker. Fantastische scherpte en diepte in deze foto. De kleuren zijn erg helder en de compositie is schitterend.

Ha ha ha! Those Zebras must explode with irritation every once in a while have those Oxpeckers on them 24/7!
A fantastic image!
Those stripes are almost hypnotising!
Stark contrast and great light.
I like composition and POV.
The Zebra on the right has one angry-looking face :-)
Superb work Annick.
Well done,
