Posing in the sunshine

I made the most of my time off today with a trip to the British Wildlife Centre [britishwildlifecentre.co.uk] along with my Dad and friends Sharon [webdzine.typepad.com]and Andrew. The light was a bit hit and miss but the sun popped out from behind the clouds at strategic moments and rather conveniently this often happened when the animals we were watching at the time were striking a particularly photogenic pose!

I've never had much luck with the Centre's polecats before but this little cutie was very happy to pose for me this afternoon!

Surveying one's territory…

This Red Deer fawn was particularly photogenic.

A visit to the Centre wouldn't be complete without a fox portrait - especially for Dan!

      What a great collection - you were certainly lucky with the light.... and that's another place added to the places to visit!

      The polecat is precious; the fawn is fantastic, but the red fox is really fabulous! Wonderful post!

      Great captures, Helen! Animals don't take posing directions very well, but you must speak their language!
