Behind The Lens

Location
It was taken in Tapada de Mafra National Game Reserve, some 30 km from Lisbon, Portugal
Time
Suppose, It was late morning..
Lighting
Just natural light.. when I saw the sunrays coming between the leaves, I realized that I can get good bokeh)
Equipment
No tripod this time. Canon 5D mark 2 and Canon 70 -200 f/2.8 lenses
Inspiration
This Game reserve is a magical place! I was lucky enough to live right there and I got up at 6:30 and started walking with a camera in search of deers,wild boars, etc... occasionally I got the barn owl !
Editing
Not much. Some clarity, sharpness, vignetting.. the eyes were too dark - I had to fix it...
In my camera bag
Canon 5 D mark 2, canon lenses 16-35, 24-100 (kit lenses ) canon 50 mm fix f/1.2, canon 70 -200 f/2.8, flash, Gitzo tripod... additional battery.. Thanks god I have a car...)
Feedback
I wish all patience and good light !
