    Morkel, the best wildlife photographs - like the best people photographs - make us feel something about the subject rather than just showing us something about the subject. This image captures a grace and beauty - and in my opinion - makes the viewer feel how graceful these wonderful creatures are. The black and white stripes, the contrast of the movement of some of the zebras and the stillness of others allows the beauty of the moment to really come through. Love it!
