King of the Jungle

Just a quick post today… This was shot at the San Diego Zoo.  I was toting around the Sigma 70-200 2.8 and really love the DoF you get from the longer focal lengths!  A pretty typical zoo lion… They’re always sleeping, huh?

    I really like this. The color contrast is very good. The Nikon version of that lens is on my list.
