I took this image on a field trip with my Nature and Wildlife Photography class to the Philadelphia zoo. When I took this photo, I wasn't particularly excited about what I captured, but i'm pretty happy with the final result.

Did most of my adjustments in RAW conversion, especially increasing shadows and contrast. Adjustments to hue/saturation in PS, as well as a bit more contrast.
