Wow, thank you very much for the kind comments and votes.
Once again on a family outing at Klapperkop and the kids played on the hills with their guns, shooting Zebra and me shooting with the cam. Wife reading in the car. I did of course asked them to keep away and only shoot to kill when I was finished :)
Well, we were all just joking and could never shoot such a beautiful animal.
Thanks again.
Rian

Well done on getting the yellow. It took me a while to orientate the Zebra in my brain. An excellent perspective and very well presented.

Congrats.

Great shot Rian. Congrats on the Yellow, and it must be a lot of fun to shoot these animals in the wild and not in a Zoo!

And that, friends, is how the Mohawk was invented.

Although I find the foreshortening of his rump and head a bit odd.
