Hello friends, i wish I had a telephoto
zoom lens, unfortunately I don't have
and my photos (with the next posting)
will be environmental shots !

Knowing already about this Red Fox den
and the family over there tell by
a photographer friend, but he told me
you have to be there early around 6:00 AM
to see them and even that if they see
you they will go to the den.

Today it was at around 8H40 AM I was passing
by there when I saw a Red Fox puppy over the
den for about 2 minutes (that photo I will
post it tomorrow) then he enter the den.

I change my place to be more at the den's
level hoping one of the puppies will come
out when from the other entrance of the
den I saw the Red Fox Mommy come out and
she start to yelp on me wanting to tell
go away from there ! it was the first
time I was living such an experience of a
Red Fox yelping on me, WOW ! it was impressive !

I did only one photo of the Mommy, this one,
here I also give an 30% of cropping to have
it a little bit closer but not more because
I want also to show its environment.

At her turn she enter the den and I leaved
the place not wanting to disturb them.

Tomorrow I will post the puppy's photo
That I shoot in photo before this one.

1/4000s f/8.0 photo shot
in Manual mode), ISO1000
50mm (35mm eq:75mm) and
up to 30% of cropping.

Nicely cropped with good framing Asbed. The fox is a touch of orange magic to the picture. I can't think of anything I'd change about this. It really is a nice environmental shot. Trevor

Hi Asbed
Today, you catch a fox for us!!!!
I never have the chance to meet a fox never in my life, for that I am envious!!!


I love my Nikon 80-400mm! Worth the fortune it cost. The image needed such a lens.


Hi Asbed, This is fantastic, to see a red fox in its natural environment. I like the way you present this red fox. JC
