The Stalker

By teocali
Another from the BWC meeting with other EPZ members back in July. I think this is the Vixen "Flo" in stalking mode, approaching in a fascinating sly, slinky, zig-zag fashion to where a piece of food (not pictured) was lying in the grass.
Settings: F/7.1 1/100sec ISO500 manual@105mm handheld

Many thanks for your great response to my House Sparrow upload Smile Your continued support means a lot to me and I really appreciate the time you take to view and comment on my offerings.

Nice to see a fox in action instead of just posing Wink

Typical fox behaviour very well captured with stunning detail on the head and just that slight movement to prove the approach - love it - Ina

Certainly has a very intent expression and the low head and purposeful movement of the stalk, Sylvia! Excellent shot.

Great capture, one of my favourite animals, when I was young we had one for 8 years, the eye so sharp.
