Nice one Wolfsong, that fox looks very healthy. More like a pet than a wild animal.

yup.. he was really casual about the whole thing.. when all was said and done I tried to get out of the car for some different angles.. didnt get 1 foot out the door and he was gone like a shot.

We had a really good rodent year this year.. the coyotes and foxes are fat right now.... had more hawks this year than I have seen in years as well due to rodent populations.

Taken today. It never dawned on me that Eagles would have Paddlefish on the menu.

2nd photo should give you an idea of how close you can get to them. There was a park ranger with a very big stick just out of shot :)

Ha! Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside, definitely an apt description. Though I'd have to say the 'crunchy' part was doing pretty good - I watched that alligator turn the turtle around in its mouth 5 different times, even dropping him once, over a period of 10-12 minutes, and he still hadn't cracked the shell through. The noise of those jaws snapping down on the shell was amazing - yet it still held. At one point, he even dropped the turtle on all fours, and it started trying to 'run' away (as much as a turtle can run), but it was quickly picked up again (actually, the shots are in reverse order - the first taken is the 3rd posted, then the 2nd - and the 1st photo posted is after the turtle almost got away and is now in a new position).

Csaba, These were shot this past Saturday at Green Cay Wetlands in Boynton Beach, Florida. I was standing within 6 feet of him, with a wooden rail seperating me from the gator - he was too busy trying to get into that turtle shell to care much about me anyway!

Some shots i took of the big cats at Sydney Zoo.

I like them, they were shot through a glass wall they have at the zoo and it was just before feeding time so they were both very alert and watching any movement around the enclosure.

I hear those are getting to be pretty rare csaba. Not something you come across every day anymore in africa.

Looks like you were shooting directly into the sun... that is never fun and makes photography pretty difficult. Were you with a guide? If so I am a bit surprised.. they usually pick their approaches a bit better than that and take into account sunlight for ppl taking pics whenever possible. Mind you there were probably many reasons why he did what he did if it was guided. If you were alone you probably didnt have a lot of choices either. It must have been a cool enounter however seeing them. I would have done the same and viewed them for a while... after that I would have tried to swing around the back side of them if at all possible to get better sun and hopefully better pics if the terrain and everything else allowed. I know they are pretty spooky but from what I hear they settle down pretty fast and are curious so if they spook into a den its usually not long before they come back out.

We had a guide driving our truck but he didn't have many options in where he could position us as he's not allowed to leave the road and there were a few other vehicles crowding round. All the animals in Kruger are used to tourists so they ignored us, they were sitting in the sun for a good 5-10 minutes whilst we watched them :D .

It was probably the highlight of the trip. Like you say they're very hard to find now so seeing them was an a welcome surprise.
