Lion Closeup Stare

Uploaded: April 29, 2008


The lion was probably 35-40 feet away, and I had to shoot through a steel-mesh fence. The 70-300mm zoom enabled me to capture the lion in the opening between the mesh.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 10/2000 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, FocalLength: 270.00 mm, Model: NIKON D80
