Cross Fox

I finally saw the Sylvan Lake cross fox. It was very early in the AM and light wasn't good, but I got a couple shots.

October 3-12

This was, perhaps, the worst trip I've taken photography results-wise. Animal sightings were plentiful, but they were almost invariably far away, with intervening brush and/or bad light. I had much more luck in Grand Teton than Yellowstone, and I didn't have that much there. I did SEE a few interest...

Re: Yellowstone Fall 2017 Trip Report

I've been here since the Third and seen very little. I'm down in GT now, did see a big boar grizz just before the "Welcome to Grand Teton" sign, but he was a tease as far as showing his face.

Re: Ordered a new lens for the trip

That lens works surprisingly well with the 1.4x teleconverter (especially given how the old one basically didn't cooperate with teleconverters at all). I'll be curious to see if it's adequate for you, Rick, since I know you've used big primes in the park before. Max It's not my only long lens for t...

Re: Ordered a new lens for the trip

Honestly, I haven't had time to take the lens out with the new TC since I got it. The hurricane basically shut down all the nature parks around here and they're still shut down by flooded trails. I guess the TC will get a workout at Yellowstone next week...

Re: Ordered a new lens for the trip

That's the same long prime I have, Nordwil: the 600mm f4L VI. Bought a VIII 1.4X TC to go with it.

Good for you! I also picked up a new one: the 150-500 Nikon. Everything I’ve read and heard has been positive. It’ll replace my 150-500 Sigma which I have not really been pleased with as far as tack sharp on the long end.


Cool, hope you like it.
