Michelle Alton 6/15/2011 3:15:18 AM

Hmm. I thought it was a caterpillar...Need new specs, I think.

This is very impressive work, Jeff. Great composition. Great use of the long zoom...Handheld? #9461311

Jack Gaskin 6/15/2011 3:57:20 AM

Love them stripes. What you say about color is so true in many animals. It's the getting close enough to rally see thats the tough part.

Happy Shooting

Great diagonal comp, Jeff - really showcases the long line of this beautiful animal's neck and the b/w stripes and spikey "mohawk"...b/g enhances those color tones perfectly - it all comes together superbly. Great eye at work here...well seen and captured! #9461611

Fantastic work in letting us see that not all things are as they appear to us. Your incredible use of the camera lets us see those other tones. I love the way you composed the picture, the dof, and then the gorgeous colors of the zebra. The way you detail every single hair is amazing, the sharpness of the details awesome. Amazing an gorgeous work my friend.
Have yourself a great day. #9463392
