When I saw this picture on the wall today i remembered that it was one of my favourites for a long time, so today again a picture from Tanzania.
When resting many herbivores will gather in a group and place themselves in way that the group will have eyes turned in every direction to spot lions or aother carnivores approaching

Hello Tom,
This is a wonderful shot of the group of zebras and I can imagine why it is/whas? one of your favorite shots.
It's a great sight to see how the three zebras standing on the right side are lined up wonderfully and the one lying down is in between the legs.
I suppose all five of the mature ones are spotting and protecting the youngster wich is lying down on the left side.
Excellent composition and lighting.
Love the panoramic format.
Thanks for sharing.
Best regards,

salut tom,
very beautiful capture.
i like the soft colours and the left + right looking zebra composition.good framing.
very lovely ambient in here :)

Hi Tom,

An excellent capture,I can understand this is one of your favorites,I suppose you could as well post a LP version of it when you want (in the manage tab),well done and tfs


Bonjour Tom,
Excellent wild image from Tanzania!
I like so much this group of zebras, in a resting moment.
It's very good the way they are pointing to opposite directions on the picture, and the very wide composition made to take advantage of that.
Felicitacions et merci du partager.
Mes amities,

Hello Tom,
I was searching why this is a good compo; I think the layers (horizontally) are very effective.
Very good wildlife image...
