Formerly the Burchell's zebra ranged north of the Vaal/Orange river system, extending northwest via southern Botswana to Etosha and the Kaokoveld, southeast to Swaziland and Kwazulu-Natal. Now extinct in the middle portion, but surviving at the northwestern and souteastern end of the distribution.

Hello Annick!
Nice portrait of zebra! I like eye-contact and very good sharpness. Moreover, watching all these African pictures in your gallery I see that you spent a very fruitful time in South Africa.
All the best from snowny Lodz!

Hi Annick,

Beautiful light in this shot. I like the smooth colors of the background and the photo is kind of relaxing.


Hello Annick
This is a lovely portrait shot...The crisp sharp details with the eye lashes and whiskers are stunning...Having had the use of the same lense as you I am close to getting the 300mm f2.8..Once used there is nothing fine as you have shown here,
All the best

Hello Annick,

What a wonderful expression you have captured here! The zebra looks to be saying "Who, me?"

Very sharp, detailed shot and expertly cropped!

kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Annick,
Very nice composition. Great picture.

I recently painted a zebra portrait very much like this. Your sharp image shows me where I went wrong and where I was correct too. I missed the fuzziness of the forehead and mine has curlier eyelashes!!!!! : )

Hi Annick, very nice portrait, clear detail and clean background, perfect exposure.

Annick, very nice shot and well taken in to the frame. The eye catch is very nice and also the composition. TFS Ganesh

What a stunning portrait of this Zebra!
The eye-contact here is fantastic!
Very sharp with exceptional detail.
Great composition as well.
Very well done,


Such a sharp image I can count the whiskers of the Zebra, Annick.
You have amassed a treasure of great work from South Africa. This is a gem of a picture.
Thanks for sharing and regards.

Hello Annick.Superb mugshot. The muted background brings out the details very well with excellent sharpness. Well done. Jusni
