Taken this morning (Christmas Day) - couldn't believe my luck when I managed to capture eye contact (by whistling!) with this wild Fox (Vulpes vulpes) as he/she hunted again in the fields outside our bedroom window. This was taken through the open window from about 100yds away. Shall be on the lookout tomorrow morning for sure Wink
Settings: F/5.6 1/3200sec ISO800 AV@420mm handheld

Many thanks for your continued support of my work. Really appreciated as always. I hope you all had a great Christmas and all the very best for 2011.
