On the prowl

By AnnChown  
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.
PS: sorry there are no shadows for the Shadowy Saturday people!

Jumps off the screen, Ann. If you ask me, this is well worthy of an award or three. Great capture.

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.

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!
wow great shot lovely eyes and great colour.GrinGrinGrinGrin

Sounds like a great gathering and day out you all had, and you have come home with a brilliant foxy portrait, Ann, and I bet many more of similar quality.

There you go Ann, a brilliant cropped in shot, and you could not do this better
for those eyes..perfectly clear and pop out at you
great meeting up, & look forward to next month
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.

Wonderful close up Ann - the colours are wonderfully rich and focus is sharp from the tip of the nose through to the eyes and ears.

Was great to meet you yesterday and looking forward to our trip next month.

The first thing that struck me about this picture is the colour, and then the detail in the Face.
Great shot Ann, hope to see many more from the Day.
