amazingly fantastic image! In composition as well as in execution. Love how you got all the detail in both the magpies and the jackal! Despite the snow making it difficult to get the right exposure. On top of that keeping yourself calm to take the image! Great work

Behind The Lens

Location

This unique frame I made close to an abandoned level in which I had found traces of a jackal. After a few weeks of watching and studying the behavior of a jackal, things happened.

Time

It was December, late afternoon. the light was soft and the shadows beautiful. And the snow reflected the light. I can only say that I had great luck.

Lighting

Light. I will not hide, just hit the moment of the sun after sunshine. These footage can not be directed. It is natural, no more beautiful than the natural, I have never used lightning.

Equipment

My camera is Nikon D7200 with Nikkor 300/4f lens, and teleconverter 1.7 TC, I can not help mentioning my priceless binoculars Nikon Monarch and tripod bnro with ballhead.

Inspiration

My whole love for nature, I wanted to show the wildlife closely. I hope I have succeeded.

Editing

Cleaning the noise and little sharpening I've used. Nothing new.

In my camera bag

My Nikon d7200, Nikon 300/4 lens, binoculars and tripod.

Feedback

First to apologize for my bad English. I do not know what advice I would give to anyone who would like to get a similar shot. Success lies in perseverance, the love of photography, and shoot and do not stop. Photography is an amazing art. Thank you friends.
