Some Red Foxes from this evening.
I knew there was a den close to here as I set a Trailcamera on it last year.
Momma (seen here with the shaggy coat) had 3 young last summer,only one this year.
The male (father) is HUGE but not seen tonight.
In about 15 minutes they each caught several mice or voles but got them down fast enough that I couldn't catch them.
You can see them "working" their noses,the wind was coming right from the same direction as the sun.

Jay all with the 500mm...freehand.
The barbed wire is about 100yds,most shots they were under 40 and as close as 15yds,light was perfect!(I think anyway :wink: )

Here is the slideshow from the den lastyear.
Taken with a trailcamera,a Sony Cybershot P/S inside a weatherproof Otterbox (kinda similar to a Pelican case) rigged on a Sniperboard to activate camera once movement is detected,locked to a tree with a Python cablelock.
Just add a can of Sardines,turn board on,lock it and walk away.

Have to re-think if that was the same Vixen after watching that.
Hmmm one of her offspring maybe?

Knew you'd like it Wolf :wink: :lol:

I knew I had uploaded these to flickr while I was still at home...

This was in Labrador a few weeks ago.. great thing about kayaks.. they are all but Silent... came around a point and seen this guy snoozing... had my camera out and shooting before he had opened his eyes.. caught these before he came around totally and ran... It was great to see him still with his winter coat... He was about 30 meters away when I snapped these.

There was a snowshoe hare carcass close by... you can make out some of its hair in some of the pics... guess he had a good feed and decided to take a nap

It was still cold there and we actually had snow one day so I didnt find the white coat curious but I did find out later that there is a small percentage of arctic foxes that never totally change color during the summer and this they say is more than likely one of them. Must be a tremendous disadvantage when it comes to hunting in the summer.

Haha that last one it looks as though he is telling you,
"I got a belly full and I am sleepin it off, what the heck are you doin out here anyway?"
Or maybe he's saying something else?...lol

I love finding things like that,getting the shot makes it even better!

Going through some recent shots with DXO. Here's a not so wild wild one. Don't you hate it when someone walks in front of you when you're trying to take a shot?

kinda cheated on this one.... took a drive to moosejaw yest and on the way back noticed a fish & game truck and 2 people walking through a field with a radar antenna. Stopped the car and got behind them and when they seen me and my camera they asked me to stay behind them and they would signal me to move up when they had located it. Shortly there after they were on their hands and knees so I followed. They found this little guy snoozing and signaled me to come up for a shot... after they told me that this guy was used to humans as he had been part of a test group for some time.... Burrowing Owls are highly endangered. This is only the second time I have seen one in the wild but I dont have much luck with owls...

That Egret sure looks like a predator from the frogs POV :lol:

Owls are certainly one of my favourites wolf..nice catch.

This is a very wild and mighty dragon - but I guess he'll need quite some time in order to eat this "critter"...
