Salut Pierre
Thank you for showing on TrekNature this interesting photo of the two Zebras.

Etoscha is stunning - is it not!?!
You see there in one hour more animals that in in Kruger Park in a week!

I can imagine these two zebras drinking so closely to each other to have a bigger horizon to watch out for predators, as the animals are quite vulnerable when drinking...
Interesting also, the Zebra on the right having a brown marking on the nose and the eye, which I have not seen before.

I like the tight control of depth of field and the natural colours.

Have a nice week-end
Greetings from South Africa

Incredible gorgeous shot Pierre! Etosha definitely is a dream destination for every wildlife enthusiast and you must be quite lucky! Nice shot, lovely detail perfect dept of field and composition! I am on a hunt for a longer lens ! are you happy with the current setup? Have a great evening and thanks for sharing this capture!

Lovely shot with such clear detail on the animals and a nice composition. You are fortunate to be there to see these wonderful animals.


Hi pierre,very nice capture.

Beautiful and so well composed. You most certainly caught these at the right time. Contrast is spot on. Thanks for showing us!

Hellow Pierre,
Nice clear imager of these two zebras.One can see clearly, on their heads, that no zebras stripes are similar.Like the finger prints of humans.

Nice shot. Sharply focused and good colours. Thanks for sharing.
