More festive foxes for you to enjoy!

Some More from the Fox of the Day

Just a short follow up to yesterday’s post. These are a few more highlights from the Complete Fox of the Day collection.

A couple of my favourite photos from April 2007:

And, as we head into winter, possibly my absolute favourite as it took me so long to finally get a good shot of a snowy fox, this one from January 2011.

Tonight’s ‘Fox of the Day‘ is in the usual place.

Four Portraits and a Video

The portraits are more of the smaller furry creatures that I’ve been photographing lately, but if you are not keen on rodents the video should make a welcome break in the recent trend. I’ll come to that in a moment. The mornings are becoming very gloomy at the moment, which probably suits the local rats rather better than many other pond inhabitants. There were several scurrying around on the pond fringe this morning, and they were quite bold.

I mentioned a few days ago that two of our local foxes had injured legs. I’m pleased to say that both foxes are on the mend, and are visiting nightly (though not when I’m around with a camera. The video is not one of the limping pair.It’s a short clip of Pretty, exploring just before midday today. It’s good to see her back in the garden, and with a bit of luck I may even get a photograph or two.

Camera note: all shots taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens.
