The Look

By glazzaro  
Good Afternoon

Again this shot was taken at Bombay Hook Nature Refuge in the wee hours of the morning. The light was soft and there was some overcast. This Fox cub was just sitting on the edge of the path and did not seem to concerned with my presence. This was a tough shot as it was early morning, John (yjeep) and I went out at 5:30 AM just to go find these guys. I got a bit of a break as my trip was canceled and I am home until next week, might even get a chance to get out for some shots! See you all out on the site!

Hey if you have not had a chance to check out the new Album feature EPZ has put in place, do so, it is really nice feature to help you get organized, check out what I have done.


Physical Setup:

1. Used the car as a hide, the cub was in the dirt road having a scratch as we pulled up on him. Stayed within camera range but not to close as to scare him off.

Both this and yesterday images have been really great. Just shows you how good a photographer you are Greg, you have captured the last two images in rather poor lighting and they still look fantastic. Well done.
