Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken on the Salisbury Plains in Southern Georgia (South Atlantic).
Time
Late afternoon, around 5pm, but in December sunset is around 10pm, so in this case, the sun was still high in the sky.
Lighting
n/a
Equipment
Sony A900, Sony 70-400 f/5.6 @400mm. 1/1000, f/6,3
Inspiration
Penguins are very curious as they are not used to visitors. By regulation, you cannot get closer than 5-8 meters, but as penguins do not know how to read, this regulation only applies to humans. As the photographer kneel down and stayed quiet, the king penguin moved closer.
Editing
Just a bit of crop.
In my camera bag
I tend to travel light. 2 body, 3 lenses (24-105 f/4, 100-400 f/5.6, 55mm f/1.8) a Teleconverter x1.4 and a tripod
Feedback
Be patient, be ready, observe animals behaviour and try to anticipate their action
