Zebra closeups like this proved tricky because the ones I were trying were very skittish.
The answer was to have a long lens (800mm), get close, aim and focus all within a second or two. Eventually practice paid off and I caught a few.

I host photo safaris to photograph the Great Migration during the migration season in August and September in the Masai Mara. I am also hosting Big Cat Safaris next March as well as customised Private Photo Safaris at any other time of year.
