From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Burchell's zebra is a southern subspecies of the Plains Zebra.


Burchell's Zebra is a large land mammal with an off-white coloring, but never pure white. The shadow stripes are usually well marked, and the leg stripes are absent or poor, and almost never complete to hooves.

Hi Annick,
great work on the PP here, all looks good and natural, nothing to critique as always! This a very 'classic' pose of the Zebra and shows off those stripes very well. The green grassy background really makes him stand out too, very well done.


The DOF, BG, sharpness and detail are very well displayed here.
