Red Fox Series (twentieth)
How sad. The moment you suggested for some help I have to be the one to go and drop you. Within a couple of minutes I'll be leaving for Pretoria (±700 km trip) so, I do not have time to do a proper critique and there will be no TN activities this weekend.
However, I have to say, 'GREAT MOMENT'. I really would have loved to let my thoughts run on this one, but I will have to resist the temptation and leave it up to ManYee, Janice, Howard, and (as you said) who wants to try himself to describe it.
Very well done my friend and TFS.

Hi Luc, nice photo of your traditional model, this one with her yungs. Nice word about photography. I hope you rescued your disc.

Now, how many are feeding here Luc? Mama has her hands full, and the attention she gives to the outside world, but not you, while feeding her little ones is good. She knows you're here, and yet she was trusting you while she feeds them. It's makes me content to know that it's not you she's looking out for.
SUPERBE mon ami,
Quoting you quoting Henri Cartier-Bresson"
Photography is nothing--it's life that interests me!

Good shot, i think it was not easy to take it. TFS.
A photogrph that shows the essence of what nature is all about. Your whole series on this mother and her babies has been amazing to say the least. You have been very blessed to watch this first hand. Thanks for the great photos, and sharing them with us.

you are an excelent photografer because captured wonderful and professional images with a prosumer camera. Begans with a S1 IS and now with a very good S2 IS. This is an example! Composition, brightness and contrast ok. Note very, very good too!

To quote your quote of Henri Cartier-Bresson: "If the photographer succeeds in reflecting the exterior as well as interior world, his subject appear as “in real life.”
Once again, you have succeeded in your photograph in reflecting real life in all its intensity. We can see that the pups have their heads completely in their mother's bosom, to the point where they cannot see anything else around them. In our heart we know that they are sucking with everything they have got, oblivious to the world outside. They don't have to worry, because they have nourishment and security in the realm that their mother has created for them. Lucy, the quintessential mother, stands there, offering her body for her pups' sustenance and protection, again, her eyes trained to the horizon, forever vigilant. Transcending the supposedly wide gap of species between fox and human, I feel the bond of motherhood with Lucy. Thank you for this symbolic image of motherly love.

Mon espagnol fait pitié contrairement à ta photo. Tu sais que tu pourrais pratiquement faire un documentaire avec ta série. Comme d'habitude, la technique est sans reproche. Mais plus important encore, les moments saisis sont très descriptifs sur le début de leur petite vie.
Bravo belle présentation.

Lovely moment you have captured here. Mum looks very alert searching for any trouble that may happen while her young one feeds. She is obvously a very protective and caring mother. Nice work. Thanks.

Excelent capture, Luc! I´ve seen one of this when I was walking with my son in the Mount Royal Park last october and I was surprised to see it inside the city. I didn´t have the opportunity to shot it, so is very nice to see yours. Wonderful sharp details and colours! Well done, Luc!
I think this must be one of those experiences that stays with you for a lifetime. Another great shot here, a perfect moment in time recorded and kindly shared. Beautiful work, all of these shots.
