I shot this in the Umfolozi Game Park, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa.
The stripes of a Zebra are like fingerprints of humans, and as with us no two are the same.

Excellent title and interesting information, Erwin. (Should it be zebra?)
Sharp exposure, very cleverly cropped and very good details!

kind regards,
Bev :-)

Great! Love this close-up of these two. A wonderful artistic shot.

Hi Erwin, it is beautiful to see them together. The image is a little unsharp, but the composition is very enjoyable to see,
Thank you for sharing

Hi Erwin

Interesting shot with these two crossing heads.

The composition is fine and so are the natural colours. The early morning light provided a lovely soft glowing quality to the shot although it pushed the boundaries of your aperture and shutter speed settings. You probably would have preferred a little more light so you could have increased the DOF range and in so doing have both heads in sharp focus. I think it would have worked better if the zebra in front actually had the sharper focus than the one in the back. That one (the one in the back) is in perfect focus though. The BG come out well OOF and assisted in isolating the subjects from the rest of the surroundings.

Good effort and TFS.
