Foxy Fun Day

By LynneJoyce  
Foxes from my stay with Lillian, a photographers trip with Wild Arena to the British Wildlife Centre. Again we were urged to make the shots as natural as possible, but as always, I couldn't resist some no pretence shots.

V1 is not my favourite but as usual, the one I thought made the most attractive thumbnail. Those of you who know how perverse I am will guess which ones are my favourites.

If anyone does this event, please, please, please wear waterproof trousers. Neither Lillian nor I did and we had wet bottoms for much of the day, not because of ageing ladies' bladder problems, but because of sitting on the very wet ground.

It was a wonderful day populated by fascinating wildlife, with the exception of one very tame and very cheeky vixen who tried to nick my camera bag. She was a real delight and every time she saw someone she knew and was fond of she rushed up to them, wagging her tail.

Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy some of them.

What a fantastic set, I can't possibly pick a best as they are all worthy of their own individual upload. - gary

A wonderful set Lynne, but V7 is exceptional because she is smiling for the camera, I love the ones peeking through the grass also, as I have said before we raised a dog fox from a cub when the Vixen was killed by dogs when I was a child, we had him until he was 5.

Perhaps next time you and Lillian go out Lynne,you should each have a whoopee cushion to keep your bottoms dry.It would have the added advantage of the gentlemen not mistaking you for a couple of Foxy ladies when they see the cushion tucked under your arms.But as usual you will probably think that I am just full of hot air.Another solution would be a plastic groundsheet for the pair of you to park your bottoms,but this could be mistaken for the plastic incontinence sheets they have in hospital beds.These little fold up canvas chairs could be the answer,but I know from bitter experience how embarrassing it can be as a large crowd begins to form as they watch you trying to figure out how to put the thing up in the first place.A shooting stick might do the trick as long as you remember to put the spikey bit in the ground and not the wrong way round.The easiest answer is to go out only on dry days but that will mean you will only have a handful of outings in a year.I really do not know the answer as to how to keep ones bottom dry.But there is no need really to get your knickers in a twist trying to figure it out !!

That is one impressive set Lynne!..all great and not even going to keep going
back and forth trying to decide on any one in particular!..have been and still cannot decide
Now as to Micks comment..I could add ''pampers''? maybe
as we must have had sunken trousers from all that wet and mud
but was great fun, and we were'nt the only ones!!Wink and we met Andy Rouse!
love the set

What a delightful set of foxy images, Lynne: it would seem iniquitous to choose a favourite......they are all winners for me. But if pushed I'd perhaps settle for V 7 and 8.
As with others, I like the natural effect with the fox peeping out at you through the grasses.
And doesn't Mick always provide some light relief with his humorous remarks.
Wonderful natural photography on which you must be congratulated.

"Well Mr Fox?", the wily fox with a sometimes sly look as it watches through the grasses. Some wonderful expressions here.

HOW sweet is it that she came to people wagging her tail??? Grrr...SO cute Grin

These are all amazing captures, Lynne. Every single one. For a face-on foxy portrait, I think V10 totally rules.

The other 2 shots which really get me are V3 followed closely by V7.

Amazing set of captures here Lynne and too difficult to choose favourites - with the exception of V7 - class shot.
Apart from your great shots, I get great entertainment from your page - Mick again.
Am also seriously green with envy to read you met Andy Rouse!!!! Lillian omitted to tell me that.
