A Long Distance Fox and a Squirrel Portrait

It’s been a long time, and I’ve had little success in the garden, but today I did manage to photograph a fox. Ok, it was a long way away, but a fox is a fox and if it’s a fox it’s on this blog. I spotted it at the far end of the University of Brighton campus at Falmer.

That’s an uncropped photo. This next one isn’t.

Far from great, and even at that distance I may well have spooked it by daring to take a few steps in its direction.

And that was that. More early morning fox watching beckons!

I had more success with the squirrels in nearby woodland that runs along the edge of the campus.

This is the shot I mean. A squirrel portrait!

    Excellent shots, Words!
    I especially like the squirrel shot, and the view of the woods.

      dW, thanks. The last two shots are way superior to the foxes, but of course foxes have a special place. It’s a good time of year to get out. The light is decent at a sensible time of day.
