Look at that Booty!!! What a cute shot!!! I loved the zoo the other day, but the next time I go I am going by myself. That way I won't be rushed. Great shot!!! #625451

Zebras are gorgeous, but I guess this one is stubborn as a mule too! Great capture even if he didn't want to get up and pose for you. #4088920

Kitty R. Rodehorst-Hanna 3/23/2007 2:16:36 PM

Love the detail, composition and exposure on this! Well done! #4097575

Rosemary Buffoni 3/26/2007 6:48:50 AM

I like the fact that he is butt first and laying down. It's a rather unique presentation. The turned head, as if he's glancing to see if you left yet...lol is great too. I think you did a great job.

I think you made the most out of a difficult situation, and managed to get a well composed and clearly focused shot, Christy! I love zebras... I have some shots of them in my gallery... and I like your a lot! It caught my attention immediately! #4100836

Brenda c. McFarland 3/26/2007 10:58:26 PM

Christy- Great image! leave it to a guy but my husband got a zebra shot many years ago of the back side also but it was standing and whizzing at the moment he took his pic. Then this past year at a zoo.. well we won't go there but I won't give him my camera to take monkey pics anymore! LOL! #4101121

Alexander Grima 3/27/2007 8:27:52 AM

I think the shot is perfect--because he turned his head and neck so that it's not just a butt-shot, he allows us to admire the gorgeous markings coming down his spine and tail without the uncomrtable feeling that we've been looking at his butt for too long! ;-)

Great Shot! #4102767

Marta J. Baldwin 3/28/2007 9:18:53 AM

Lynn Crawford 3/29/2007 9:25:22 AM

Oh Christy I like this alot, even from this angle HA HA HA, great capture of the stripes and the attitude of the zebra not looking at you, well done :) #4109406

Joan Kocak 3/29/2007 9:55:58 AM

The End!!! Christy I have been so distressed over the loss of your two kitties and I have tried to tell everyone I know that this problem is a real tragedy of epic proportions to all pet lovers. I am keeping mine prides under close observation and just praying they don't get sick. My feelings go to you and all those you love, my friend. #4137794

Lisa Clark 4/8/2007 7:27:37 PM

This is an excellent shot. Looks like a winner! #4144989

Sandy Powers 4/9/2007 10:32:25 AM

Tee hee. This is SO CUTE!!! And I think you did an excellent job. It is razor sharp, and the colors are rich and pure!

Those Zebras . ..they so have a mind of their own, don't they? :) I think this is great!

Now here is an animal with attitude, Christy! Great work! #4171708

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


Or should I say.. Zebra bottom. LOL I so wanted a good shot of this beautiful animal, but he wanted none of it. So this is what I got. :)

This is my first attempt at an animal, other than my kitties. Not sure if this turned out ok.. I'm going to try again soon! So much easier than working with kids! LOL (JK!)

Not sure on the spec ATM, but if anyone needs them, I can look them up. :)
