I'll do my best!

This shot was taken just before sunset (in the Zoo) and I noticed how the reddish sky was adding even more color on the animal and wanted to use that color and some shadows. I usually like to fill my frame with objects (i.e. no background here or sky, etc) and was trying to have some kind of flow from eyes/face to the rest of the body - keeping the focus on the head/eyes area

I used a Canon 100mm 2.8 lens on a Canon 40D cam.
Shutter prority at 1/160 sec, f/4.5 (I think the ISO was at 800 but not really sure)

Hope this helps
