INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Arctic Wolf (Canis lupus arctos)
Location: Canadian Arctic and the northern parts of Greenland
Size: 1.8 m long, 79 cm high weight: 75 kg
Diet: Caribou, musk oxen, Arctic Hares, seals, ptarmigan, lemmings. Arctic wolves eat all their prey, also its bones and fur
Conservation status: common. They still live in the whole of its original range, because local conditions are too extreme for humans.
Interesting facts: mother gives birth to some 2-3 pups in May. Pups are born almost black as they get older, colour of their fur turns to white. Adults are completely white, even in summer | arctic wolves live in the pack of some 7-10 members. Only alpha male and alpha female mate | arctic wolves have shorter ears and nose than other wolves species. They also have thicker fur, shorter legs | they do not run too fast, their advantage is persistence

Woxys, in what mode do you usually shoot?

I see that you have used ISO 1600 and got a shutter speed of 1/1250 of a second.

You could have stepped down to ISO 800 to get a shutter speed of about 1/600 of a second and maybe even to ISO 400 which would have given you still 1/320 sec. That should be enough for a focal length of 225mm to get a sharp shot.

Anyway even stepping down to ISO 800 would have given you already an increase in sharpness and clarity and if you would have stepped down to ISO 400 even more sharpness and you could have used the image stabilizer of your lens to compensate the shutter speed of about 1/320 sec if your hand is not that steady.

Oh and I guess it would have made the photo even better if you would crop away the little branches on the right or use a stamp tool in a photo editing software. You don't notice them right away, because the wolf is the brightest part of the image (and the human eye is attracted to bright things), but at a closer look it is a little disturbing.
