Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at the Sacramento Zoo. It was in the morning as it gets hot in Sacramento and the lions like to stay out of the heat. I was waiting a long time for the lions to come out. He was walking around and climbed up on his rock and laid down. I could not believe that he was looking right at me.
Time
I believe it was about 9:30 AM on a cool morning.
Lighting
Natural sunlight
Equipment
The Sony field rep was at the Zoo demonstrating the cameras and super lens. He asked if I would like to take some shots As an amateur, I'm not sure what the lens was
Inspiration
The lion, King of the Jungle, has always fascinated me. So Majestic & Powerful
Editing
No
In my camera bag
My camera of choice is the Olympus Pen-Light EPL 5. M. Zuiko 9-18 mm f4-5.6 lens
Feedback
See the world as a child. Everything is a new experience Don't be afraid to just let the camera do the talking. Look right, look left, look behind you, look up. You never know where the next magnificent capture will come from.
