The next in the series of British Wildlife is this Vixen. Wanting to come closer she was a bit warey and wondering what the big black thing pointing at her was. Taken recently at the BWC. I do hope you like her as much I did taking her photo.
I must admit I was a little disappointed at the amount of response to my last upload, but that's the way it goes sometimes. Thanks to everyone who take the time to view my images and leave comments and votes, it does help to keep my spirits up at the moment.
Best wishes,
Steve.

Its a great shot Steve, it shows its not to sure about you. I think the poor reponse is people are out more in the sun. Keep your chin up your pics are great.

She looks very wary. You have caught her eyes so well. She looks as if she about to slide off into the undergrowth. Great image.

Views, comments or votes seem to be a bit scarce all round at the moment Steve. Perhaps its better to be charitable and suggest folks are out enjoying their hols. in the sun.
The fox is a cracker with a real look of devilment in the face. Nicely timed again.

Not too happy is he - that one ear twitch back gives him quite an expression - did the other ear go back also after a few more seconds. Interesting how we can read animals in their body language, and especially in the positions of their ears.
