I found three bull moose near the roadway in Grand Tetons National Park. They were frisky this morning as they hiked through the deep snow to find bitterbrush in a sagebrush field. Fortunately, the morning sunshine was steady, and this nice bull walked past my truck about 30 yards away. I photographed it from my truck window with the aid of a bean bag as it walked past Grand Tetons National Park mountains in the background.
I used a Canon R5 with a Canon RF 100-500mm lens and a manual exposure set to produce the first blinkies in the snow. Since eye focus was having trouble "seeing" the eyes of the moose, I used a custom button to switch to a small spot focus. While I often use Auto ISO with manual shutter speed and aperture, I find during winter with lots of snow; I am better off using total manual exposure.[the_ad id="61677"]
