Running Wild

A giraffe leads a herd of zebras as the animals stampede from a threat unseen. Your Shot photographer Mohammed AlNaser captured this image in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. The zebras “emerged from nowhere,” AlNaser writes. “They were obviously drinking water and something scared them and created a few seconds of a chaos.” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
