@@hubertj I could never imagine that zebras would mourn the death of a member of the herd. I didn't think that they were intelligent enough for that. Of course as we know that is something which elephants do.

@@optig - you're probably right. It might be our over-interpretation. But I'm really wondering how this behaviour could be explained.

@@hubertj -I do have to say that much about animal behaviors remains unexplained. Mammals and birds are found to be increasingly intelligent. I'm always

astonished how animals can show altruism.

Unrestrained.thumb.JPG.40ff45d9c06037367a93bef9c96e671f.JPG

 

Unrestrained

 

Photographed at 5:33 pm on 1 October, 2014 in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

 

ISO 100, 1/2000 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Shutter Priority exposure.

 

****************************************************************************************************

 

These Grevy's Zebra were running in a circle with tails flying, mouths open and unrestrained exuberance. The sheer energy of their galloping was a thrill to observe firsthand.

 

In the background an Oryx quietly grazes, more intent on obtaining more nutrition while light is available, than on watching the zebra show that it's seen many times in the past.

@Wild Dogger That would make a fine wall hanging. Any chance of doing a quick walk through of your post processing on this one?

@game warden
Thanks Matt

No problem.
Actually this shot was supposed to be a high key, so I overexposed it by 2 full stops in the field already .
Post processing was just transform it into black&white, sharpen a bit, and do some slight adjustments (mainly just contrast) all in the photoshop raw converter.
Then crop it in the desired format (I like the 16 to 9 format very much). That´s it.
So no secrets ;)
Unfortunately it´s a bit tight on the left, but that´s always a problem with big herds and fixed lenses, you have to cut something off most of the time.

Here´s the coloured picture:

Now, when I see it with this slightly coloured, I even like this one more.:)

I find Zebra very difficult to photograph.

 

But sometimes I get one I'm happy with.
