Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes)

    I went back to my friends' house who have a den of red foxes under their barn. The litter of four is quite big now; big enough that I am surprised they are still using the den. I was extremely fortunate this time to image the vixen, as well as one of the kits. The kit didn't mind the shutter noise at all, but the vixen stayed still for two images and then was gone in a flash. Unfortunately she was situated such that a full body image was not possible, so I have tried two different crops. The lighting wasn;'t good, as the foxes were located in deep shade with bright sunlit areas behind them. However, beggers cannot be choosers, and the opportunity to obsrve and image these guys is simply to good to miss. Exif data is on P-base; I used the D2X+500mm or the D2Hs+120-300+2XTC.
