Hi Erwin,
A very sharp presentation of this couple of zebras. A splendid action shot of these frightened animals. Perfect sharpness and the adequate shutter to freeze this instant and perfect timing.
Very neat work.

Perfect timing, Jonathan.

Lighting reactions by you to get a shot of these zebra as they are scared off.
Very nice focus and light, strong details too.

Great action shot, frozen to perfection. We know the animals are darting off due to the water splashes around the legs, and the drops of water from the zebra's mouth on the right tells us it was drinking literally milliseconds before they were scared off, so absolutely no need for motion blur to add to the action.

Nice portrayal of how alert animals need to be to survive in the wild.
