Symmetry with beautiful back lighting, BUT no sales....

Great shot, Paul! I would have maybe removed that small dark-colored branch at the top (above their heads) and crop a bit that they are dead centered. Anyway, it's amazing that such a great photo has no sales...

Went out to the zoo last weekend to test out my new Sony A6000. The weather and lighting conditions were not the best but managed to get a few decent shots:

It is not the case for me. I have many pictures of zebras and this one is my best seller with 25 downloads

Awesome pic, and I agree with Emil - clean up the little branch in the middle.

I'd play with this pic a little, Paul - it's awesome as it is, but if it's not getting noticed, make another version that's slightly different. You just never know, it really deserves to do better!

@fatir29 Incredible horse series! Is this 85mm or 120mm or? Were you far away behind bushes or in the center of the galloping? _)

@Emil O the cheetah is the best and the shot is great! Life in captivity.
@cpaulfell cool pic with zebras! Agree with @Emil O about the branch. You are lucky you have no sales still because you can delete the photo, improve and upload again - and one more chance for the photo to be noticed.

Snakes can sometimes be a challenge to capture:

 

California King snakes are fairly docile, especially in the morning before things warm up:

Gopher snakes can sometimes be difficult to detect, as they blend in so well the the background:

The natural camouflage of a  Pacific Gopher Snake (Pituophis catenifer ) makes it almost invisible, as it slithers through the woods in the hills of Monterey, California.

When they're small, they are quite cute:

My dog Melody likes to chase them:

When they get big, they're a little scary:

Don't try this at home.  (this guy was over 4 feet long!)
