And the South Africa photos just keep on coming. This is a Burchell's zebra with her nursing foal. It's a real tribute to our tracker and ranger that we were able to get so close to so many animals, making it possible for me to get some very nice photos while being restricted to our game drive vehicle. It was also very accommodating of the animals for being most active during our early morning and late afternoon drives.

I like the comp and the moment captured but the image seems to suffer from a lack of sharpness. I'm enjoying your SA images.

Nice capture Roger, cudos to your guides for getting you in close. I agree with Bob about the sharpness - did you hand hold at a shutter speed of 1/25?

Yes, I did hand hold this shot.  It wasn't practical to use my tripod in our game drive vehicle, and we weren't allowed to get out of it.  I used a stabilized lens that has given me up to four extra stops, so hand holding should have been satisfactory.  Maybe it's just a point of focus issue, or the vehicle may have started to move just as I took this shot.
