What a delightfully composed shot, the tree and grasses forming such a natural frame for the fox: and with the snowy b/g, the animal stands out so well. The lighting and colours could not be better, and the detail is excellent. A truly perfect shot IMHO, Sylvia.

This is a gorgeous image. What a beautiful specimen - it has a very angular face (real foxy instead of dog like!).


Quote: not good enough to upload


I'd love to see the series - could you perhaps upload them as 'variants'? Smile (please) Smile

I quite agree - close isnt always best - in this case a really delightful and lovely shot with the lighting and the natural surroundings - a top quality shot

Beautiful shot Sylvia.The lighting on the tree shows some marvellous texture and detail. Its also apparent that this is a wild animal from the cautious stance and attitude it strikes. different somehow from a captive beast.

Superb shot of a wild fox, beautifully framed by tree & f/g. Exellent.
Super light and pose Sylvia. Better than the wall I can see out of my bedroom window!

Thank you all so much for your kind comments and votes, with a special THANK YOU toJNC (JeanNoelC) for the User Award - all very much appreciated.
I have uploaded a burst series of 6 images (basically record shots) showing the Fox pouncing on a rat. These have been cropped in synchronisation in order to preserve the movement when "mousing over" and it does actually seem to work. Hope you enjoy the sequence.

Superb light bringing out the detail and colour on the Fox, it must be good to have these beautiful animals on your doorstep, good to see the images of him on the hunt for food.

Well done Sylvia. I have just revisited your site and I think the variations are superb. I cant imagine how you ever thought they were not good enough to upload in the first instance.
Excellent.

A superb series showing the natural hunting so well Sylvia. The prey looks to be a weasel from the arched back

The lead shot is very nice and it's good to see the hunting sequence, too. #3, in particular, reminds me of a sequence of a fox hunting in the snow, in the BBC's documentary series on Yellowstone from a couple of years ago.

How lucky you are to see foxes so close to your home. A really magnificent set Sylvia.
