Hi all, another shot of the Vixen from a recent series, not sure whether this is aggression or the young Fox just being playful but from what I saw on the day she just seemed very frisky Wink
Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on my Robin portrait and a special thank you to MattB1987 for the GEA, really appreciate your support.
Regards,
Geoff.

A beautiful detailed capture Geoff, she seems to be in a submissive pose with head lower than her shoulders, when we had our fox this was the pose he would get into if my father was on the scene.

By the look of her Geoff I would say it was time to lock up the chicken coop !! Thats a mischief look in those eyes if ever I saw one. Excellent shot.

Excellent image. A far from friendly look on her face. I have experience of Foxes "playing" when they killed nearly 100 free range hens I raised for sport and left the vast majority lying about!

I'm sure that if you were a small vole or mouse you would not describe her actions as playful!Wink You've timed this shot perfectly to capture a wonderful expression of feistyness
