Picture of the Day - 3/4/2011
Mountain Lion, Oklahoma City Zoo - The Oklahoma City Zoo has been fixing up their displays over the last several years, primarily to make the enclosures more natural-looking. This mountain lion was photographed through a plexiglass viewing port, which allowed for unrestricted photography. Many zoos still have fencing that tends to interfere with picture-taking, but we'll be talking about zoo-photography and how to overcome this in the March newsletter. Because this was taken in the shade, the lighting was nice and even, however, there was a slight blue color-cast that had to be corrected by adding a little yellow. I liked the natural-looking pose, but this requires a lot of patience - a good trait for wildlife photographers!
