[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ths is one of the two male Red Foxes at the British Wildlife Centre. The Female recently gave birth to 3 cubs and it was my intention to get some shots of them but unfortunatly they weren't playing ball and only got a fleeting glimps before they went back to their den. Met up with Adrian (aido) and Hollie (slrnovice2), nice meeting you again Hollie.

A great frontal shot of that beautiful fox, Mark.
Fantastic POV and very fine details. Gorgeous colors on the fur.
You seem very close to it. Is it through glass?
TFS : )

Hello Mark,
A beautifully detailed capture of this fine animal. Great composed and with excellent POV. Natural colours, excellent sharpness and great details too. Thank you for posting.

Very well done!

Hi Mark,

Nicely composed with very good POV, colors and details - excellent!
Well done!!!

Hi Mark, this is just the kind of shot I was after (but didn't get - at least this time). I love the pose and your POV, the view of the stealthy predator making a path through the long grass is brilliant. Very nicely done. Great to see you again and also to meet Mark. I hope you both have a great time on the 26th.

Hi Mark,
Lovely shot, you've caught him in that moment of pause with his leg lifted, just as he stopped to scent something I think. Beautiful rich colours and excellent natural surroundings, it looks like a well trodden path he is on!
