Saw this guy in the morning about 150 yds, then shot some night landscapes in same area that sucked too lol. First Cougar I have seen in my life in the wild, I watched him and lost him for 30 minutes as he traveled a half mile on the fire road below me.
I got to where I thought he would come out for shots within 30 yds, but some hunters showed up and I never saw him again.
I got that hair on the back of my neck feeling everytime I lost sight of him, but still wanted to get closer.

I've never seen one in the wild, only tracks on rare occasions. What an amazing experience for you.

It really was cool, I have spent a lot of time in the woods around here, I used to hunt, still fish, now photography, never seen one. After watching it I know why, he would move about 20 ft then stop, when he stopped he just dissapeared. I have neen back a few times since but no sign of him. I really like this little STM but a 400mm would have been nice for this one.

Took a trip to the mountains to take some photos, stayed at a camp my brother had previously seen a wolf at.

Day 1: Super foggy walked a little fire road, tried a couple nuthatch shots couldn't get shutter speed due to poor light.

Day 2: Super foggy again walked same road, same result. Cooking dinner on campfire heard wolves howling near where I had walked the past 2 days.

Day 3: Fresh snow, less than an inch, clear and sunny but cold. Walked same road, saw five sets of fresh wolf tracks. I tracked them for 3 miles no sight of wolves. Got a couple Snowshoe Hare photos nothing spectacular.

Day 4: Clear and cold walked same road. Finally caught glimpse of 3 wolves trotting thru timber. They were moving pretty fast and timber thick and dark but got a couple long range, dark woods shots of 2 of them.
