Default 70-300 lense in poor lighting (In the Rain)

This is what my E-520 with the 70-300 did in the rain
Horrible lighting
ISO 400 F 5.6 shutter 1/320 250 mm
I held the camera against a pole

That Pole wouldn't happen to be named Ted Kurkowski?

Nice shot Fred. Please pardon my lame attempt at some humor.


Sorry, Ted, from one pole to another, I couldn't pass up the opportunity.

The picture was taken at the Grizzly and Wolf Discouvery centre in West Yellowstone MT. It rained all day.
Only Sissies do not go out in the rain. LOL

The web site little out dated .
http://www.grizzlydiscoveryctr.com/

The wolves are now in a seperate enclosure away from the main building . No glass which is better for pictures.
There were six wolves when I was there. This one had the " Eyes "
Not the same as capturing a shot of a wolf in the wild but still a shot of a beautiful animal

Re my shooting.
My E-520 is good for ISO 400 which helps in the low light.
I reduced the Fstop untill I had a shutter of 320 or over . Best for the 70-300 is F 8
Anything over 200 mm I need a shutter of at least 800 or a tripod in this case a light pole . I am shakey. Maybe I need more coffee.
