I took this at the Saint Louis Zoo. This is one of my favorite shots I took that day. It was also one of the only natural shots that I took since most animals and insects there are captive this one was not. I was also using a 70-300 vr lens on this shot it was one of my friends. I am learning with my newer camera I need newer lens which was what I was hoping to avoid.
