Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken while on safari in Africa in the Northern Sarengati.
Time
We found him in a tree on an early afternoon drive. We spent a couple of hours with him moving around the tree.
Lighting
Even with it being early afternoon light. The tree did a good job of filtering out the harsh rays.
Equipment
This was shot on a Canon 7D using a 100-400 lens.
Inspiration
We were in Africa hoping to get pictures of the big 5.
Editing
Yes did some minimal cleanup of the image.
In my camera bag
I pack what I need for a given shoot.
Feedback
Be patient and the image will show itself.
