I went to the Zoo with my new lens and just went nuts taking pictures! No tripod. Got a lot of great shots, but this was probably my favorite. I probably should have done a little Dodge along his left side...

Thank you! The softness wasn't intentional nor desired. You are right in that a sharper image would be been better. I should have done more post-editing. Unfortunately, at 300mm focal length without a tripod, this picture is the only one with his expression and clarity that I had that wasn't blurry! I'll have to remember to bring a tripod next time! Thank you for your helpful comment.

Thank you so much. That is exactly the reason I chose this picture over the others. I just loved the expression on his face and body.

Got to love the humour although I'm guessing by the vegetation that this may be a zoo shot. BUT - this image is brilliant and I'm not going to nit-pick on what is/not natural environment - after all - he's not sitting on a plastic chair is he? Deserves a good place - I wish you luck.
