I do like your B/W captures. They are awesome.

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in the Olomouc (a town in the Czech Republic) ZOO, where I went with my sister (a teacher at a basic school) in the first day of her summer vacations.
Time
The photo was taken at 12.08 on July 1, 2015, when I went to lunch.
Lighting
Fortunately the antelopes were well-enlightened by daylight, otherwise it would be more difficult to take any picture. No additional lights, of course.
Equipment
A Sony Alpha 77 MII with Minolta 200mm, F2.8 was used when taking the photo. No other equipment was involved.
Inspiration
Well, there is no exciting story behind taking the picture. Just, I was rushing to the restaurant, where my sister was waiting, passing the antelopes patch when I looked back and saw two antelopes. I took the photo almost automatically and went further where lunch was waiting for me.
Editing
The original photo was not a black and white photo. It was converted to bw photo during the post-processing. But frankly I do not remember the method I used for the conversion.
In my camera bag
My bag is not very big, which means I just carry the lenses that could be the most useful ones. In a ZOO a telelens is always needed. More particular, the old and superb Minolta 200 f2.8 is almost always therein. The Sigma 35 f1.4, Minolta 100 f2 and Sony 16-50 f2.8 are also therein and all together form my basic stuff. The camera I used was the Sony A77II.
Feedback
Well, many pictures are taken just by chance, which is the case of this photo - by chance I looked back and the antelopes were positioned as they were. So, one should be ready for unusual situations and should have a good sense for such situations. On the other hand, many situations can be expected and foreseen ahead of time.Any advice?
