Trotting Coyote, Yosemite Valley

Uploaded: November 28, 2010


Another rushed animal encounter. Breaking down my landscape rig at the back of car after returning for a morning meadow foray, this coyote comes bopping along side North Valley Drive. I had my 70-300mm lens locked and ready, but still in landscape mode with polarizing filter, etc. I quickly bumped up the ISO, switch away from mirror lock up, turned on the VR and started panning. What fun this place is.

D300, Nikkor VR 70-300mm F/4-5.6G, 270mm, ISO 1600, 1/60s, F/5.6, Singh Ray LB Color Combo, VR on, handheld.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 5/300 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 1600, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 270.00 mm, Model: NIKON D300
