[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just back from Lesbos I'm still quite excited about this fox family. Although I went for the birds, this foxy scene will stay in my mind for ever. On the westbank river near Skalloni I saw a motherfox with 6 cubs. The distance between me and the foxfamily was about 30 meters, so I needed my 600 mm.more than ever. Of course I shot this one from a perfect hide: my car.
On this capture you see only two young foxes, but in my next postings I will show you more.
I hope you like this first post.

Hallo Zeno,
Ik ben vorige week terug gekomen van Lesbos. Daar heb ik geen vossen gezien. Ik ben heel erg benieuwd wat je daar allemaal hebt gefotografeerd.
Deze eerste opname is veel betekenend. Prachtig van kleur en uitstekend van scherpte. Genomen vanuit een prima laag standpunt, lijkt het. Erg mooie compositie en de groene achtergrond mag er ook zijn.
Goed weekend,

HI Zeno,
The Car is the best ;). Serious the photo is really great. The light and the fox puppies not aware of you, but a protective mother, makes a fine composition...

Mooi Zeno,

Ik weet dat vossen op lesvos enorm veel afgeschoten worden, omdat bijna alle vogels hier grondbroeders zijn, en vossen ruckzichtloos alles doodbijten waar ze de kaken in krijgen, dus wat gemengde gevoelens. Als ik morgen thuis ben hoop ik ook een vossen foto te plaatsen :)

Overigens wel een erg mooie scherpe foto

fijn weekeinde

Hello Zeno,
What an impressive image of these little ones with their mother. I love viewing fox, unfortunately they are extremely elusive in my area. Superb detail and gorgeous coloration. Love the wonderful composition and perfect exposure. Great work!!
