Reworked Coyote Photos — 001

For them not interested in reading, you can see the photos in THIS<<link SmugMug Gallery.  

For a SmugMug slideshow, click HERE<<link. When you click the link, it will open in a new window, and you have two options:
1) Manually scroll through the photos by clicking the “<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos.
2) There’s a PLAY/PAUSE button at the bottom-left of the screen with the transition set at about 5 seconds. Note: clicking the PLAY arrow will run a full-screen slideshow. You can then still use the”<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos (this will pause the slideshow).

If you want the full experience, keep reading.

That coyote was photographed at Little Big Horn — yes, that Little Big Horn — with my Nikon D100 and Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR lens.

At this point, it hadn’t yet seen us.

A few moments later, becoming aware of our presence, it melted into the landscape. Yes, I know those aren’t great photos, but I liked the sequence of it looking right and left, and they’re than what I could process sixteen years ago (the photo was taken in 2004).

This next photo might or might not be of the same animal. Whether the same or a different coyote, it would look at us, move, look at us, move, and so on.

I have two very similar versions of the next pose, but this one has the coyote looking at us full-on. Probably wondering if we are edible.

Here’s a gallery of all five photos. Also, the SmugMug gallery has the previously reworked two coyote photos, and will eventually contain more.

By the way, in an effort to keep in practice with the hated block editor, this was composed using my Block Editor template (a generic draft I created with a bunch of blocks already set up) that I copied and edited to create this post.

No matter the “improved features”, the block editor is still slower as far as getting things done, and not because I don’t know how to work it, but because it takes more clicks to do the same things I can do with the Classic Editor with fewer clicks.

“They” will tell you the block editor is feature-rich — and it is — but if you’re not using all them features, it’s a bit like putting on a tux for a trip to the bathroom. Sure, you’ll look spiffy, but unless there’s an audience there waiting to check you out, the effort is completely wasted and more of a bother without any return in the investment of time and effort. And the porcelain throne won’t care either way.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
