“Got Your Goat”

Getting the stair down from the Markhor getting in the Asia Quest region of The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. This guy was quite inquisitive the morning I was there shooting last.

A Shot A Day – 2016(B) (121A of 365)-(30-04)

Nikon D5, Nikon 600mm f/4 VR

ISO 800 – 1/500 @ f/4.0 – 600mm

Normally very stand-offish and aloof, this Markhor was right up against the glass and checking all of us visitors out. Made sure that I didn’t blow out any of the highlight details, had the right aperture to give the desired depth of field and went for the facial details in the image. With animals and wildlife the number one concern is being ready when the moment happens.
