Coyote Gets Its Prey

Posted by Nick Lust (Hollister, United States) on 16 February 2013 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Today's image was taken about a year ago in Yosemite National Park. I was with my friend Charlie, when we witnessed this coyote hunting in the snow. To my surprise I saw the Coyote pounce on a small field mouse. I reacted quick, and I was able to capture this image. What amazed me more about this image was how sharp and in focus the coyote is considering that I was hand holding my 1D Mark IV with a 300, 2.8 lens and 2X converter attached to it, which can get quite heavy. I didn't have time to get a tripod or monopod ready.
