great photo

Hi Tom, very nice shot of these three. The two running side by side are a little disconcerting at first (kind of a neat effect). The colour is all good and the zebras are good and sharp, displaying great detail. I like how they are all looking at you.

Thanks, John

Hello Tom,
At first glance I though that the two zebras in front was one two headed with seven legs :)
They are very close to eachother and seem to run at the same pace.
The way all three of them are looking your way is lovely.
Exposure and clarity are perfect and the way they do stand out against the dryed grasses is wonderful.
Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards, Harry

yes,i agree with your note.i'd like to squeeze one in my arms!
the two in the front are walking like siamese brothers!GREAT!

Beautifull shot I love the contrast with the soft background and hard stripes of the Zebra, I like the composition how they are posed with heads to the focal point. Well spotted and timed tfs rgds Necip.

Hello Tom, even if zebras are fotogenic, it is not easy to have a perfect exposition with this black and white pattern... But here you successed magnifically! This picture is wonderful and we can feel how confident they are toward the photographer! The great nice bg bring softness to this great picture!

Excellent job and TFS!
