[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a portrait of a Burchell’s Zebra captured in South Africa’s Kruger National Park..

It is photographed along the H1-3; leaving Skukuza and driving north towards Olifants Restcamp. This is taken somewhere between Skukuza and Satara.
It was a cloudy day. Thus the amount of light was limited. Plus there were not a lot of animals to spot due to the weather…

Don't know whether this Mpumalanga or Limpopo province...(in progress:-)

Hi Annick , great portrait of this zebra , a herd of these black and white lines must really be confusing for a predator ;-) , a very good composition with good color/exposer and detail. TFS

Hi Annick,

Wonderful portrait shot of this Zebra, love the detail on this right down to the chin whiskers, beautiful colours, really well framed and composed, all the best,

Cheers Rick :)

The POV, comp, and eye contact make this one special Annick..
But I'm still seein' stripes darnit!...And they seem to run together in a weird sort of way..know what I mean?? ;)
