Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at Panther Ridge Conservation Center, Wellington Florida.
Time
It was taken shortly after noon.
Lighting
The light was tragic. The pictures I took of cats in the shade of their cages were fine.
Equipment
This was the first digital camera I owned. The swift transition from film seemed to happen overnight and I bought an 8 megapixel Olympus E-300, It shot 2 1/2 frames per second and had a three point focusing system. HA! I loved the camera. The lens was a Zuiko Lens 14-54mm f2.8-3.5 II. Excellent glass.
Inspiration
He wanted my camera and I wanted his paw.
Editing
Not much in processing. I believe it was done in Adobe Elements.
In my camera bag
At present I have two Olympus Omd-Em5 cameras with an assortment of lenses. I went to the micro systems after heart surgery. They are competitive and light when lugging around.
Feedback
Don't go to the zoo's at noon!
