Not on that particular leap. The evening before I watched one successful hunt where the coyote laid down and took a nap after gulping down a couple of voles in short order. Here, I was hoping that he'd catch a ring-necked pheasant. (There was one hiding less than 20-feet from where it's hunting in this shot. Pheasant amaze me at how well they can hide in plain sight).

They seem to come up empty about 2/3d of the time. When they catch a vole (a mouse-like creature with a furry tail), they'll gulp in down in about three-seconds. They're well feed, as you can see. They've got voles, prairie dogs, pheasant, bugs and the occasional deer fawn to keep them fat and content.

Thanks Adrean.

I invest a lot of time in photography. Luckily, the results are getting closer and closer to what's in my head.

Also, I enjoy the hours of sitting and waiting, or chasing, or climbing, or whatever's needed to get to the shot. You need to know your equipment, but the most important key I find in wildlife photography is knowing the subjects and then coming back over and over and failing over and over, but enjoying it all the while, until you get the shot that you've been dreaming of.

You might enjoy this guy's work. The moose and critters in NH seem to regard him as a friend. It's amazing how close he can get to them without spooking them.

Yes, very nice stuff. Thanks for the link.

Part of my family were early settlers in NH from England around 1620. I didn't realize that the wildlife was so rich there. I need to plan a trip.

The key to many of those shots is spending a lot of time and knowing where the animals are likely to be. He doesn't provide much background, but it looks like he lives very near where many of those images were taken. The right lens helps a ton.

Bill's been one of my Flickr Contacts for several months. He's got lots of great stuff.

There's lots and lots of pure junk on Flickr, but if you search around a little you'll find lots of treasure. One thing I do is when I find a user that uploads stuff that I like, then I look at their Contacts. They'll tend to connect with people with similar interests and skills. Once a day I go to Contacts/Recent Uploads and see several really nice, brand new images, almost every day.

You can unilaterally make someone a Contact, unless they block you. Once you've identified someone as a Contact, then you can have Flickr show you recent uploads.
