[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Grevy's Zebra is the largest species of zebra. It is found in the wild in Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia. It is considered endangered, partly due to hunting for its skin. It is tall, has large rounded ears and narrow stripes. It is named after Jules Grévy,a president of France, who was given one by the government of Abyssinia in the 1880s.

Hi Daniel

Zebras are one of my personal favourites so I just love to see this nice shot showing the alert ears and the eye contact with the grevy’s.

Lovely composition and POV. Natural colours, good details, superb BG well removed and OOF, and fine exposure control makes the photo a pleasure to view.

Great work and TFS.
