Thanks Kevin, great article and impressive images. I had good luck with the Sony 200-600mm lens in India last year photographing tigers and leopards. 600mm just wasn’t enough reach for snow leopards. I really appreciate the animal / eye focusing update on the A1. The focusing results evident in your images are very encouraging. Beautiful animals.

Many thanks for your article. Wonderful images. Wolves are among my faves.
About three years ago I spent a day at a well-run wolf park in crowded ole England, of all places. Neighbours must have been able to hear eerie howling over their pints in the local pub. I found that the wolves were not too difficult to photograph compared to many animals that move quickly or lurk in vegetation, so I was able to put more concentration into light and composition. The park did have viewports in the fences and this made a big difference so I hope they introduce them in the park near you.
I was using much more modest kit than yours but have still managed decent 45” x 30” prints off the files with a little help from Gigapixel. However, the quality from your camera and lens will be in a different class.
The technology in modern cameras has come a long way in a short time. Eye-focus is clearly amazing. Touring with a knowledgeable guide with whom the animals are familiar makes all the difference too. Glad you had a fine time after all we’ve been through.Re: Sony a1 and 200-600mm G lens Photographing WolvesReply #4 on: March 16, 2021 at 2:52 pm
Very interesting article, Kevin. Maybe it’s just as well I didn’t buy an A7Riv…

A wolf park in England, Mark? Where?

Interesting. Shame it’s shut. I’ll have to go somewhere more exotic than Reading. Can there be such a place?
