Two zebras in South Luangwa NP.
 

 
To watch it in fullscreen, click "YouTube". Right now, I cannot see fullscreen in Safari on Mac, but at least it works in Firefox. Strange.

All from Mara October 2012. The 1st, 2nd and last one are from 2 crossings I saw with Ping -less than a km apart and each around 5-7k of wildebeests and zebras. The 3rd one is with Jackson on my last full day -rains throughout and we drover very close to the Tz border where there were large herds everywhere. The 4th is just driving along Mara mid morning.

That first pic has a dreamy quality to it, almost like using a soft focus filter back in the day...

I think you need to write a tutorial working through the technique with before during and after images :)

During June 2008 in the Serengeti we watched waves of zebra milling about before stopping to nervously drink at a small river crossing. We had seen a large crocodile about 20m up the river from the drinking hole and stopped to watch the action.  This time, all the zebra managed a drink for the muddy-looking water hole and wandered off to graze, safe for another day.
