Yesterday morning whilst out on drive we came a cross a herd of zebra bathed in an orange glow cast by the rising sun. The photo opportunities were great as we made the most of the soft backlight. This image was taken at 6:59.
After ten minutes of watching and photographing these guys, we were just about to put our cameras down and move on when one of the guests said “Oh, look at what’s on this side”
Expecting a black backed jackal or Yellow-throated Longclaw, I was certainly not expecting to see this…
That was 07:10 and believe me there are a whole lot more images to come from this sighting.
Even as a kid I remember my dad stopping at every sighting and reminding us to look around and see what else is in the area. This might help you predict movement, interaction or simply see an even better photo opportunity.
Keep your whit’s about you and don’t forget to look all around you for photographic opportunities. You never know what you might miss out on!
