Hermosa imagen. Los sentimientos de los animales

Behind The Lens

Location
The New Forest
Time
I think it was an afternoon
Lighting
I like natural light so prefer to capture Sun light on their eyes if possible and wherever I am shooting I like the Sun when it's golden as all photographers probably do :)
Equipment
Hand held Nikon camera DSLR
Inspiration
I was sitting watching them for a while and when I saw two getting close I was ready, they were so loving towards each other it's good memories for waiting patients sitting quietly observering.
Editing
I cropped the image and little I probably used contrast
In my camera bag
depending on where I am going maybe another lense, a shutter release button, ND filter and 2 spare batteries as well as cleaning cloth of course
Feedback
just being patient, especially when I bird watch you can sit for hours waiting for one you're happy with :)
