I'm curious to see the behind the scenes shot of this one. Were you in the watering hole?

I was in an underground hide 3m from the water's edge, shooting behind one way glass. Zebras are extremely skittish when drinking so i'd set my mirrorless fuji to silent shooting so as to make minimal noise. Unfortunately I was set up too low to get all animals in the frame so needed to rasie the camera by hand to reposition. By accident bumped the glass with my lens which scared the zebras slightly and thankfully they soon returned to their drink. They settled down and I managed to reframe and start getting some shots, silently. My wife had a Nikon D750 and upon her firing the shutter (on "silent mode") the zebras panicked. Luckily for me, I was set-up and and fired away at the ensuing action. The zebras calmed down again and returned to get their fill. We just watched in awe. What a beautiful experience and I'm left with one of my favourite images.

Beautiful! Interesting action and the B&W treatment suits the subject perfectly.
