Default The Huntress......

Just a couple frames of one of our local girls while she was stalking a ground squirrel for supper. She was so intent on the squirrel, that I had time to change cameras between shots. The squirrel escaped!

The first with a Canon EOS-1D, the second with a Canon EOS-10D. Rocky Mountain National Park - Estes Park, Colorado.

Thank's guys, but I don't deserve any of the credit - I just snap the shutter and Nature provides the exceptional subjects...

Best regards,

Lin

Lin,

Excellent shots. Just curious, how close were you to the action. ?

Hi Tee,

As best I can estimate, about 100feet on the first shot and about 130 feet on the second. I was shooting a 400mm lens with a 1.4x tele converter. The first shot was with my 1D and a bit closer. The field of view crop factor on that camera is 1.3x so the effective focal length was about 728mm. The second was with my 10D with a field of view crop of 1.6x and an effective focal length of about 896mm.

These were made in Colorado in Rocky Mountain National Park where the animals enjoy protection, so getting reasonably close is much easier than in areas where they have a great deal of fear.

Best regards,

Lin

Hi Steve,

Thanks! It was hard to decide which ones to post. I took around 30 shots of her with two cameras, so lots to choose from, but these are two of the better "poses" I think.

Best regards,

Lin

Living in England I'm not used to having wild beasties prowling around (we killed em all hundreds of years ago). I think I would have either legged it away or climbed a tree.
