Near Miss File.....Fox's Glove

By ringyneck  
Another taken while waiting for wildlife.....this time a couple of Foxes that I spotted the evening before having a boxing bout similar to Hares.
I was hiding low down against a grassy bank for them and to keep a check on the light I took a few unconnected shots.The wind was bad and the sun had gone behind the hedge when I took this with my Mini-pixel E500 and with no I.S. was amazed when I saw it on screen.....except I had chopped the top

Only saw a single fox but also a Feral mother Cat and 4 young but even darker by then so no pics.

Never mind the missing top. The colours and patterns are beautiful as is the dark background.

It's incredibly sharp and incredibly beautiful. A very 'near hit' I'd say Wink

Thanks everyone........No tip was the reason it was in the Near Miss File but I think I got away with it...he he.

Forgot to say in my hard luck notes that it was a long way away as well...aahh.


p.s. the rest of the file are even worse...beware.
