Shooting Wild Nature with Canon 5D MKII and Canon 100-400mm 4.5-5.6 L USM - Chamois and Stoat
During the walk in the Barrage de la Grande Dixence and of the Lac des Dix, in Val d’Hérens, Valais, Switzerland, I’ve been lucky enough to see a chamois from quite far. I’ve approached it to about 50m, shooting with the Canon 100-400mm 4.5-5.6 L USM, which is actually excellent for this kind of photography. At the same time, a stoat (hermine) went out of its hole in the ground and was facing nose to nose with the chamois! This was particularly lucky moment! Enjoy the photos, of which some were cropped in.
