Behind The Lens

Location
Lekki Conservation Centre, a 70 Hectare "oasis" of swamp, forest, and wildlife in Lagos Nigeria
Time
mid morning...ish!
Lighting
Natural light. Its always difficult shooting skywards so I guess I was lucky to get this result
Equipment
Canon 5Dmkiv, Canon 100-400Lmk2 + Canon TC 1.4iii @560mm....hand held. Flash wouldn't be much use as the subject was high above the canopy
Inspiration
My love of wildlife and conservation
Editing
Tweaked in PS RAW Edit
In my camera bag
When on a wildlife shoot I normally use the gear as stated above or change bodies to Canon 1Dxmkii. Definitely carry cleaning gear, spare batteries and a rain proof jacket ( I'm sorry its plastic!!) for those tropical downpour moments
Feedback
I often get asked "did you travel out of Nigeria to get these shots Bob?" to which the answer is always "nope". Wildlife is among us, it surrounds us, all we have to do is look and when you are looking also take time out to notice the damage we are doing to our environment
