Carnivores in the Wild
« on: March 10, 2016, 08:09:20 PM »
Please post your photos of carnivores taken in the wild. Mine are usually from zoos, but I recently had a great time following a bobcat in Yosemite. He was not timid, nor was he aggressive, he was in fact completely unconcerned with people. My cousin (also a photographer) and I followed him for almost an hour.

Photo was edited to remove a couple hikers from the background and add a little more sky on top.

5D3 with 70-200 (at 70) 2_8 L non IS (set to f4).

Nice shot. The only carnivores I've ever encountered in the wild were coyotes, and I was as unprepared as they were skittish, but.....

Thanks for nice comments, but I want to see other shots. Surely some of you have Alaska brown bears or African lions or Yellowstone wolves or ???

Here you go . . .

Alaska Brown Bear at Brooks River Falls - about 2-1/2 hours of patience until I got the right fish at the right angle to the right bear!
