Arctic fox or Mountain fox or Snow fox or ... many names on this fellow. An endangered species on main land Norway, but this fellow is a result of a breeding station on Dovre, where they have successfully returned a number of foxes to the wild. Beautiful little animal.

Lovely Image Eldar, we tried to shoot some of these on the Svalbard trip, they were a lot darker than this Guy so I guess it was a different variant. You seem to have a few of these endangered animals where you are located, such a wonderful experience when your able to Photograph something like this, or the Lynx.

We ran into a few people from Norway up in Svalbard (as it's part of Norway not unexpected), I was surprised that the Norwegians are such very keen hunters, it wasn't something I had ever considered when thinking about Norway, but it is surely one of the most Beautiful places I've seen, I hope to see more of the Country at some point.

Edward, it's nice to think that I may have contributed something worthwhile since April.  Back then I was unsettled and uneasy about such a high $$ purchase (for me for sure!!) and I must have been a real pain in the butt here on CR.

About that time I received this and it made me stop and think.  I surely didn't want to be NEGATIVE.

You have put up a lot of negative comments about your 300 f2.8 and being unhappy about your purchase of it and the camera.

You may be suffering from expecting that your kit will make up for your inexperience, of course it is quite possible that you have been unlucky and got a poor copy of one of the best lenses made and/or a mismatch with your camera.

Spending lots of money on kit will NOT ensure you take good pictures, trust me I have proved it.

Skulker


I like to think that from that time forward I smartened up.  I feel a little ashamed for some of the stuff I was posting but cest la vie.  Ultimately I also realized I needed to stop posting all my bird shots to that 6D thread. ;)

I won't be looking back on this new hobby until I'm dead and gone and that's thanks to a lot of good folk here on CR.

Here's one udder shot I like even though technically it leaves a little to be desired.  Blessed I am to have such things happen in my back yard.

Very good! It seems more than 1:1 to me - did you use tubes or it is just  crop?

I'd like to post and contribute to this thread. One question I have not found and answer to with the software is how to upload photos. Help. :(

Welcome to CR.

Use something that you generally process your Image in, Light Room, DXO, Photo Shop etc, loads of software available to do this.

If you started with RAW, convert to jpeg, small size, get the Image under 500Kbs, needs to be in sRGB colour format to show best on CR/Web.

Click "Reply" at the bottom of a comment/page in CR, Make your comments, then attach your Image as an attachment, Hit Save, done.

Look forward to seeing your Images

Something to look at for all those who claim the 400 DO is a rotten lens ;) Very nice shot.

Steven, thanks for posting this... I posted one a few days ago in another thread.  First time I had seen a pink butterfly!  I had no idea what it was, thanks for the ID...

Great image as usual!   :)

All the best,
Ken
