I captured this photograph in Masai Mara region of Kenya in August 2010. I used an SB900 with a beamer (Justin-clamped to the jeep) to camera right. It was rather difficult, because I also used a 30-some year old manual zoom lens (Vivitar Series I 70-210mm). So to get the flash spot accurately on the zebra and to manually operate the lens was almost impossible. Finally I asked my friend on the jeep to help me with the flash.
