About the Image(s)

This Coyote was hunting and I was hoping that it would jump in the air as they often do while hunting. Unfortunately for me, I believe he was about 200 miles away, or it felt like it. So I had to crop and no the image is not the best, but I got him!

This photo was taken at the San Jacinto Wildlife area with the sunlight coming from the top left of the image. Not ideal. Camera Nikon D850 with a 400mm lens with a 1.4 teleconverter at 550mm. Shot at f5.6, 1/1000 second and at ISO of 250.

Love this image. The narration takes care of some of the technical questions.
1. Center composition looks very good.
2. Nice focussed behavior shot in wild.   Posted: 11/10/2021 20:26:11

Nice effort at capturing the action of the coyote. The focus is very soft and the precipitation is quite distracting.   Posted: 11/15/2021 19:54:10
