Wow

This is the first of what is going to be a week or two's worth of pictures from my holiday weekend at Heia Safari Ranch. I got nicknamed by someone I met there ... "A trigger-happy Japanese tourist" ... Click Click. I just couldn't get enough.

This is little Sophie. Quite coincidentally, I know her daddy online where we chat on a local forum. He was having lunch with his family, saw myself and Marc there, but did not introduce himself. I think he thought he might be intruding.

Anyhow, after telling him about this photo, he said that I could share it online.

It somehow scares me a little with the child so close to wild animals. Brrr.
Aphrael: Hi, Mary
She is actually at a very safe distance. These zebra were really content and relaxed around their human companions. There were never any signs of aggression and if challenged, by management, they would rather move off than hurt someone. There was the odd occasion when they were chased away from the pool area and as mentioned, there were never any problems.
Regards,
Trudie
never saw them so close to people
Aphrael: That was nothing. Wait until you see pictures of the giraffe that was there wink

Lovely capture and composition.

Decisions. Who should be in focus, Sophie or the zebras? It probably depends on what you want to show with the picture. I still like it.

Big bad zebras? Sophie is as safe as if in an Otis.
Aphrael: Hi Louis
Thanks for the comment. I think that most of the time, I don't even think about what I want to show with the picture. I see something I like, grab the camera and take the shot. I only think later, when editing the picture, what I want to do with it.
Chat soon

I don't think there was anything usual about that weekend. It was so much fun! Thanks for the comment
