Zebra in flight

Photographed in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

One afternoon while on safari in Zimbabwe we stopped at a watering hole to enjoy sundowners and watch the wildlife in the golden light of the sunset. There were many animals converging on the watering hall and I got the sense that one zebra was about to make a run for it, sprinting along the watering hole in order to take position in a different location.

Anticipating this I quickly adjusted my camera setting and set up to take some pictures in rapid fire while panning along with the beautiful creature. I captured a nice set of eight shots of the zebra in a gallop. Here is one of my favorite single frames.

Thank you for taking some time to take a look at my photographs. I hope you enjoy your stop at my blog.

I invite you all to visit frequently and leave comments and feedback. I would really appreciate constructive criticism that will help me improve. You don't need to be a photographer to help me, tell me what you like and don't like. If you have any suggestions of interesting things to shoot or fun techniques to try I'd also love to know.

Best wishes,
