Behind The Lens

Location
Zurich Zoo
Time
About mid-day but the light all came through the water as I was in an observation gallery under the seal tank
Lighting
I waited for the seal to line up so the light showed off his glorious whiskers.
Equipment
Canon EOS 40D
Inspiration
I was rather cursing the presence of visitors who blocked my view through the window of the seal who was darting past. By pure luck one of the visitors reached out her hand to touch the glass and the seal instantly responded. It's the almost touching, curious interaction between two intelligent species which interested me most
Editing
Perhaps increasing the contrast a little.
In my camera bag
EOS 7D and the 17-55 EFS IS USM
Feedback
There has to be some sort of connection with the animal either the eyes or, in this case, some other visual link.
