[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The zebra, though water dependent, is a very adaptable grazer, able to eat both short young shoots and long flowering grasses. It is often a pioneer in the grassland community, the first to enter tall or wet pastures. Wildebeests and gazelle follow once the zebras have trampled and clipped the vegetation shorter.

The image of this Zebra was taken at sunset using a handheld camera in RAW format, ISO640 and aperture priority mode. Thanks for visiting!

Hello George,

What are the colors of these Zebra lovely, middle of the nature.
He takes a very nice position for the photographer.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,

Excelente trabajo George! desde el cuidado encuadre hasta el exqusito trabajo
con los colores, sin duda este es el aspecto más destacable de esta fotografía
ya que los has combinado perfectamente y la gama es rica, además de saturarlos
en el punto justo. Buena profundidad de campo.

Buen fin de semana: Josep Ignasi.

Hello George,
A somehow melancholic shot by its colors and the attitude of the zebra, the sunset-light helping to create this impression. Good decentred compositin and fine earth-colors. A beautiful creature!
Have a nice weekend
