Behind The Lens

Location
The Bronx Zoo in Bronx, New York
Time
A daytime visit to the zoo.
Lighting
It was taken with natural lighting in an outdoor exhibit.
Equipment
I took the shot with a Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi attached was a 75mm to 300mm zoom lens.
Inspiration
I happened upon this area on my visit to the Bronx Zoo, I noticed a crowd gathering. When I looked further I noticed the Gelada Baboon had her back turned to the crowd. As I focused and zoomed my camera into see her she turned around to give the group a menacing stare. That's when I got the shot and while going over the pictures that evening noticed it was the only one of its kind.
Editing
There was an auto level and slight posterize in Photoshop as well as cropping the picture for the best presentation.
In my camera bag
My Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi, 18mm to 55mm zoom. 75mm to 300mm zoom and a macro lens just in case.
Feedback
As far as wildlife photography, be present for everything and patient for anything.
