Sunday Summary

Another irregular catch-up post, partly because most days I’ve simply been photographing our fox during his nightly visits (and most of those photographs are pretty much indistinguishable from each other). There are some occasional other subjects and this Sunday Summary pulls some of them together (themelessly) 😉 Oh, there is some worthwhile fox action at the, so do keep reading.

sunset

This is a sunset taken from our garden. The i-360 is just visible in the centre, peeping over the horizon.

sunrise

This was taken a few days later and is just after sunrise, looking across the South Downs

The only bird in this set is this rather fine buzzard, photographed over Falmer Village last week.

As well as foxes, the garden is frequented by badgers. They’ve been rather more elusive lately, but I did grab a few images of one towards the end of the week.

This third shot utilizes various Photoshop filters, but was taken the same night as the others.

Now to the fox… a couple of photos first, but them some cool video…

Camera avoidance 😉

And now for the video… I’ve caught similar clips once or twice in the past, but this one is easily the best yet.

Camera note: daytime photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens. Badgers and foxes were taken with the EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM and the EF70-300mm 4.5-5.6 DO IS lenses

    Nice retrospective and video!!! Probably some kind of dispute about territory or food. Or both 🙂

      Thanks! I would guess territory at this time of year. Nice to see them like that.
