Great Emu capture!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the Metro Richmond Zoo, 8300 Beaver Bridge Rd, Moseley, VA 23120
Time
This photo would have been taken around 10 am.
Lighting
I used ambient lighting.
Equipment
Nikon D7000 camera paired with a Nikon 18-300mm lens.
Inspiration
This emu stuck its head up a few feet from me and I snapped the shot. I loved the eyes!
Editing
Minor adjustments to add light and remove shadows.
In my camera bag
On this particular day I would have been carrying a Nikon D7000 with an 18-300mm lens. I have subsequently upgraded to a Nikon D850 with a 28-300mm lens; and a Nikon Z7 paired with a 24-70mm lens.
Feedback
When taking photos of wildlife, even in a zoo setting, be constantly ready for the great composed shots happen fast!
