Behind The Lens

Zoo Atlanta
Around 10:00 am
It was an experience hard to explain. The zoo has 4 cubs and three of them where in front of a small cave they have so that is what made the back ground dark. I was just watching thru the lens as they sat there and posed. It was like they knew what they were doing. Just went to Africa and nothing like this happened! :)
Canon 5D III and 200-400 Lens with tripod and cable release.
They always do! I can't get there enough to see them and the love for animals I have!
The background was dark and had noise so I used software to smooth out the back ground. Had to help bring a little detail out in a couple of eyes. Nothing major!
In my camera bag
17- 40, 24- 105, 70-200 Canon Lenses. The 200-400 is in its own bag!
Be patient! Just watch and see what happens sometimes and you will get an awesome capture. This one just unfolded right in front of me. I was in awe when it happened! Couldn't wait to get home and check it out.
