Gorgeous capture!

Behind The Lens

Location
Zoo Atlanta
Time
I don't remember exactly but around 11:00 am
Lighting
It was an overcast day so they was no problem with to much sun!
Equipment
I used Canon Mark III and 200-400 lens with 1.4 Tripod and cable release
Inspiration
I love animals and photograph them every chance I get.
Editing
Not much with this one just brought out the light in his face.
In my camera bag
I like to use Canon 70-200 and only carry my 200-400 when I know I'm shooting animals.
Feedback
Patience! Enjoy the animals and wait for the moment! Good lighting is very important go out early and stay late. I was lucky with this day not being to bright.
