    Steve,

    I can't help but think of 'Little Red Riding Hood' when I see your last picture. Wonderful pictures!

    Steve, great shots of another of earth's beautiful creatures!

    That second shot is something else! What f/stop and shutterspeed is s/he using anyway? The tripod looks a tad too high. :biggrin:

    Great set Steve

    I'd been photographing the fox with a 500 when it came close to me. I put the tripod down and started after the fox with an 80-200 only to have the fox go to my tripod to investigate.

    We don't have any darkness for most of the summer, so "nocturnal" isn't possible. Also, I believe there may be less available food in places here, so foxes follow large predators looking for scraps. We frequently see them close to bears, and I've seen them following wolves too. I'm assuming that they come up close to people for the same reason, hoping to find food.
