Shooting with Fuji’s XF100-400mm F4.5-5.6R LM OIS WR | Dyanne Wilson

About a month ago, Fujifilm Canada asked me if I might like to try out their new Super Telephoto XF100-400mm F4.5-5.6R LM OIS WR Lens on some wildlife up here in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.  There isn’t too much wildlife in Toronto they said.  Always up for a challenge, I eagerly agreed however I’ve never really considered myself a wildlife photographer.  Don’t get me wrong I will most definitely attempt to photograph a wild animal if it crosses my path but I was never one to go and sit in the bush and wait for them.  A friend of mine visited in January and I took him out for a drive along the Ingraham Trail looking for Bison.  We drove about three hours before we spotted a fox crossing the road and on the hunt.  We both managed to get some great shots and after 2.5 hours of driving we were elated that we had seen something!  Shortly afterwards we were fortunate to encounter Bison herd which we also photographed.  Beginners luck I think…..
