One of the many (hundreds) of images I took yesterday at the British Wildlife Centre in the company of epzers Lillian, Val Saxby, Trev (achieverswales), Fred (BadgerFred) and new epzer Bob (BobHowell2012). I think we all agreed we had a wonderful day there - and thanks to Lillian for organising it for us. It was fun to meet up with everybody for the first time.
I have so many images to sort through, but this one jumped out as a candidate for my first.
Thanks for looking - comments and criticisms are very welcome.
Ann

This is stunning Ann, being there I know how hard it was to capture this as he was so nervous, the eye's have it, if the rest are like this we are in for a treat, it was nice to meet you all yesterday and the weather was great, perhaps we will meet again on another outing.

Regards

Trev.

This is magnificent, Ann. I love the way you have gone in close, filled the frame, while the relatively wide aperture focuses attention on the things that matter. Eyes, ears, nose, this is about acuteness of the senses. Just a minor quibble - I wish you hadn't cut off the tips of the ears, we lose the sense of them quivering!

Crisp and clean, the epitome of the country fox, the urban variety is much grubbier.

A wonderful colourful image which shows off the fox like it should be.
