Hello Srikumar
A touching moment captured in the lives of a mother zebra and her foal. Nicely presented while displaying good detail and beautiful colors. I like the framing and exposure is just right.
I think it would be exciting to view these unique animals in their natural habitat like this. Perhaps some day I will have this good fortune also.

Hi Srikumar,

The zebras are well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the zebras. I like the paly betweem the light and the shadow. Have a nice dy.


Hello Srikumar,
wonderful image.look so warm.pretty good.


It is interesting to see how well the foal's coloring makes it blend in against the mother and actually quite difficult to see - perhaps a natural way to protect it against discovery by predators
