Zebras at Okaukuejo waterhole

Zebras at Okaukuejo waterhole

In Etosha's dry season (July - September) animals tend to drink all day but the herds seemed to be most active at dusk.

We used to sit at the wall at Okaukuejo and wait for the herds - each day would be a repat of the previous day - first the gemsbok, then the zebras, followed by the elephants.

I think the dust being kicked up makes the photograph as it gives it atmosphere.

Nice Capture

I like it, and agree the dust combined with the lighting make the photo. Well done.
