[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot is blurred - but for some reason it really says 'zebra' to me?

It was taken in South Luangwa National Park on an afternoon game drive. It is a great park to visit as it is far less visited than parks in East Africa and other parts of Southern Africa.

Hello James
I like the way the Zebra is running away, it's what Zebra's do when startled or scared. The colours turned out just great with the sun so low in the sky. Nicely done.

Beautiful capture.

Nice motion blur giving a real feel of movement.

Good composition.


I think this is a great actionshot. Very beautiful light too, lighting up the contours of the animal.

Hi James,
I like the blurred zebra. The latter undercores the speed.
The light in the image is also interesting.

Hello James,
This is very nice with the blur for action and outstanding low light, thanks for sharing James.

Action indeed. Nothing beats South Luangwa for seeing interesting stuff!
