Yes, that's life. This female Red Fox just catched an Eastern Gray Squirrel for his lunch.

Hello Eugene

Wow, what a moment captured.That looks like a big healthy squirrel too.
The clarity is wonderful.
Excellent focus and sharp detail.
The fur detail is amazing.
Wonderful POV and DOF.
Great camera work here,that fox looks very pleased with itself.


Hello Eugene,

This is the food chain! Sadly, something has to die for others to live.

This is sharply focussed with excellent details. Great focal point!
The colour of his fur shows up clearly against the snow.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Евгений, здравствуйте,
отличнейший кадр. неужели этот лис был так занят добычей, что подпустил Вас так близко?!
хотя Тамрон 500мм наверно помог в этом деле.

Приятно видеть на сайте что-то, кроме насекомых, птиц и цветов :)

Успехов, удачных моментов для съемки,

perfect timing and great find

Well done, I think we think of wild life as cute little critters, well they have to eat, there is not all night supermarket for foxes. Exellent job,

TFS Scott

Hi Eugene,
this is a very nice capture of a capture by the fox.The beauty of this photo is most people have seen squirrels and know their size and with it in the fox's mouth now they have something good to gauge just how large the fox is by comparison.An excellent capture with great colour,pov and well focused details.Thank you for giving us this top rate image for the viewing. Bob

Wow, Eugene... Fantastic shot!
What a big prey for this small fox.
Very dramatic against the white snow.
Great light and very sharp image.
TFS. : )

Hi Eugene,
Simply a wonderful capture and in the true sprite of Trek Nature, its hard but its life, excellent composition, all the best Cheers Rick :)

Hello Eugene,
Great capture, excellent composition, good pov and superb timing, very good sharpness and depth of field, beautiful vivid colors and fantyastic details.

Hi Eugene,
a real nature picture, you have captured a great moment.
I didn't know that the grey squirrel as so big.
Well exposed with fine details and nice colours.
Well done.

Hi Eugene,

Great capture for you aswell as the fox.
Pity for the squirrel, but necessary for the fox and that's the way wildlife is all about.
Love the viewing angle and the shadow on the snow.
Perfect sharpness and exposure and therefore most wonderful details in the fur of fox, squirrel and the snow.

Best regards, Harry

Hi Eugene.
This is simply terrific by subject (as well as dramatic) and by quality shot, new my favorite picture. All is fantastic. Outstanding exposure despite the contrast subject and strong sunlight, razor sharpness of the entire image, splendid colours and huge details. Bravo and congratulations. Superb work.
