On Nature: What settings should I use for wildlife photography?

When we talk about photographing behaviors and events as they unfold, we think in terms of being “reactive”, or shooting on the fly. In a studio setting, we are “proactive”, we make decisions about pretty much every characteristic of the photo before it is taken. My goal with wildlife photography is to be more “proactive” and make as many choices before the action begins as possible, so I am not fumbling with settings when the good stuff goes down!
