This weekend I vent for an afternoon photo shooting with my friend Yves (PB member Yves51).
We were just going around looking for some nice angles and fall colors.
On our way we stopped in the small town of Knowlton.
While walking in the town and photographing the “usual stuff” I noticed something very special across the street.
There was a fox standing there deciding her next move.
I was lucky that I had my monopod and long/fast lens on the camera.
As soon the fox noticed that I was creeping her way she took off. Not running just galloping.
She made it across the parking lot and as she was entering the grassy field she spotted something and instantly vent for it.
I was so lucky to be in a position for shooting by that time.
She got a little mouse out of the grass and instantly crunched it up.
She was aware that I was stalking her so she decided to say good bye.
I don’t know about you but this was something I don’t se every day.
We can see dears, wild turkeys, even a moose sometimes but the wild look in this foxes eyes was just great.
This whole event took about 30 seconds!!!

Annbramwell You are so lucky, and well done on capturing it so completely, it is a brilliant series, I only ever see foxes disappearing through hedges, and I've never managed to photograph one...

stabeez Wow. I have seen foxes quite a few times but usually heading the other way. For this one to stay around and give a show as in 6 and 7 is very special and you have captured it beautifully. Favourites for me. Thanks.
