Thank you. I see where you are coming from.

A small herd of Zebra, 10 or so, had been frolicking around kicking up a great deal of dust before running off. The three in this image were the last to run-off. The "blurring" in the background is a result of all the dust that had been thrown up by the herds antics and I can't claim any "credit" for it.

Thank you for the details. Worked very well. Serendipity - photographer's friend.

Thanks for sharing, ValeryD. :)

They always make such good photo subjects and you captured them well.

Looks too close for comfort in the first shot Valery. How close you were?

15-20 feet? That is unbearable distance for me. :lol:
