Penguin Again

I could not resist to post a photo of this penguin from Aalborg ZOO. Whenever I take photos in the ZOO I always try to find an angle so that the picture does not reveal that the animal lives in captivity. Usually going down to the ground and finding a simple neutral background works. In this case I zoomed all the way to 200mm and used the aperture 4 (the largest hole on my lens) to blur the background. The depth of field is just a few inches as you can see on the ground. I like the moment and the negative space adding to the feeling of loneliness. Camera spec: Canon 5D mark ii with Canon 70-200 4L at 200mm, F4 @ 1/500, ISO 100.
