Hi Anja, Brilliant capture! I noticed your name and realized I knew you from G+, where I post under my name of Ronald Varley. Been following you over there quite awhile but have been on and off there for a few months. I was looking at the finalists for Discover Africa, after getting notified I also made the finals. Cheers and have added you to those I follow here. Will visit your posts soon.

Excellent photography

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Noorder dierenpark in Emmen, shortly before this group of impalas was mover to the new zoo Wildlands. The impalas eyes even looked bigger than they are. They were a bit scared.
Time
At 12.30 PM
Lighting
This photo was taken inside. The light was soft, but it was enough.
Equipment
CAMERA: Canon EOS 650D LENS Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro
Inspiration
Animals in a zoo always inspire me. I love taking portraits op animals.
Editing
I used Lightroom and Photoshop to remove some imperfections.
In my camera bag
In my camera bag: Anno 2016: Camera: Canon EOS 650D/Rebel T4i, Lens: TAMRON 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD B016, Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II, Kenko teleconverter 2x, Auto Focus Macro Extension Tube Canon, Spare memory card Spare batteries Often a Tripod, Up filters Multi Coated Glass 4 Piece Filter Kit,
Feedback
Just visit zoo's, preferably zoo's where the animals have a lot of space (like Wildlands in Emmen). Take your camera and be patient!
