My wife Terry and I were leaving Bombay Hook NWR today after some great bird shooting when we saw five foxes streak across the road and into some brush at dusk. We drove a little further until we could see around the brush and saw four foxes - mother (presumably) and three kits - across a field. After a while the fourth kit came out of the brush and saw us but not Mom. We had about a five minute staring contest until the kit finally heard or saw Mom and ran off. I have images of the other foxes too but this is my favorite.
Taken from a car with a Nikon D2x with the 200-400/4 VR at 400mm plus a 1.4x TC. And what you are seeing is only about 10% of the full image! All processing done in Nikon Capture - color balance, levels, saturation and sharpening. This image isn't the sharpest in the world, but considering the crop I'm astounded once again by the resolution of the D2x.
Bird photos will follow in a few days after I have a chance to look at and process the 500+ images I took today. You all know the basic rule followed by all good photographers: Take enough photos and a few will always be good. :wink:
