Zebras gather by the dusty Boteti riverbed in central Botswana. After driving off the main game route, photographer Jaco Marx lay down on his stomach, surrounded by herds of migrating wildebeests and zebras, and began clicking. “After a few seconds the zebra turned away and disappeared into the thicket,” writes Marx.

Marx’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
