    Foxy!!!!..................round 2

    Had a good day at the den. Only 2 kits were there this time. One of which left too early for any shots, but the runt stuck around till almost 8 o'clock.

    This mornings menu consisted of a left over chicken carcass and several chopped up hot dogs.


    Little guy pranced around real proud (only giving me this one shot) for a few minutes before taking his prize over the hill to stash it(a whole chicken leg) away for later.

    Foxy!!!!..................round 2


    Next were a few shots i grabbed as he (or she) returned to gather and hide the rest of the goods.


    Enjoy!!!

    There were lots of foxes where I move from a couple of years ago but very few people ever see one. Efforts to repopulate them after a near extinction in the area were going well. I've seen a few but you'd never get them out in the open like this long enough to take a photo. You've done a good job with your patience and framing.

    Great photos of an adorable fox kit. Hard to pick, but the last one is my favourite for the expressiveness of his/her face. It must be exciting to see these fellows come into view and then capture them with your camera.

    I just wanted to make the point that on a lot of the shots you post Steve, the white balance appears ever so slightly on the cold side on my monitor. Not much, but it is noticable. Although it doesn't look bad and doesn't detract from the images. I don't know if this is your style, or whether you need to look at some settings more closely.

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Steve:
    I agree with all said here. The last one with the kit looking directly into the camera is a real winner. You are very lucky to have had this opportunity AND to have taken real advantage of it. Well done!

    Well done Steve on an excellent collection. I echo the comments above. Most impressed with the composition, clarity and colour.

    Thanks guy's, i'm glad you liked them.


    Tommy, i usually try to keep my WB as neutral as possible. So yes , they are slightly on the cool side. Then i warm it up a bit with saturation.

    Some of the images were shot in the early morning, so the WB was only about 4500 or so. (light is kind of flat early, as well)


    Thanks again, i'll have another set soon. (one of which is momma ,with a mouse in her mouth)
