Another capture of the wild Vixen featured in an earlier upload. Patiently sitting and waiting, I was almost taken unawares as she popped out suddenly from behind nearby bushes nearly under my feet! This image is near full-frame, only slightly cropped to balance. Mods welcome as perhaps some of you might find this image could do with more "pop" Wink After uploading I noticed a couple of white spots on the tail and just above in V1 so have uploaded V2 with them cloned out.

Settings: F/5.6 1/800sec ISO400 manual@500mm tripod


Many thanks as always for your continued support, observations and critiques - really appreciated.

Took ages to find the spot so it can't be that bad.

Love the angle of her head and those fantastic black boots.
Brilliant eye contact.

Love it

This is a terriffic shot: strong composition, blurred background, lovely sharp face and great eye contact. It looks like she is stalking you.
Brilliant!

Took me ages to see the spots Sylvia, hardly noticeable at all. If you hadn't said I wouldn't have noticed them at all. Great pose and angle and superb eye

Super shot. I think I'd have composed with the fox higher in the frame, which would leave more room for her to move into. Being ultra-picky, I'd probably clone out the fraction of a white flower on the edge of the frame that's being `pointed to' by the tail. Neither is a big issue, though. Love those bright eyes and the tongue sticking out. Grin
