this common zebra (as opposed to the Grevy zebra) scratching himself on a rock on the plains of Serengetti. If they can't find a suitable rock or tree to scratch themselves with then they often rub agains another zebra

Excellent shot. Interesting action. Well composed. B&W makes this pic nicer. I also like the patterns of this zebra.

great pose and the black and white image works well, have changed a couple of things hope you like.

What an interesting activity you have captured here!
I would have never thought...;-)

Hi Sitthivet,
This is a VERY good "action-shot" of the wild. I have seen all sort of "scratch positions", and this one is quite unusual.

Was it a young animal?

I wonder, if it had lots of ticks or some skin problem, because on the top right of the body (one o'clock) the skin is quite damaged, as if it had used a barbed wire-fence for it's toilet: those scratches are too close to each other to be from a thorny bush...

I like your photo very much - and not the workshopped one: it is much too close cropped, and the frame does not suit a wild animal...

Kind Regards
