Lioness reflection
Lens: 18-135 WR Camera: Pentax K-30 Photo Location: Auckland, New Zealand ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/750s Aperture: F5.6 
Posted By: Mr008, 12-22-2012, 11:25 PM

Went for a trip to the zoo with a friend that was visiting from Switzerland. As soon as I saw the lioness lowering its head towards the water, I got my camera ready and managed to snap this shot. Luckily this shot was good, the next few were not as impressive with the ripples in the water interfering with the reflection! I hope you guys enjoy this shot, let me know what you think .
