Saturday is Pretty Day (Fox Photo Special)

She’s been in and out of the garden all week, so it wasn’t a surprise when, late morning, we looked outside to see Pretty, the young fox, lurking in the garden. For the first few minutes she was cautious, running off into the hedge before slowly re-emerging, but gradually became more confident.

All told she spent several hours out there from late morning to mid-afternoon, and for much of the time we left her to her own devices. Apart from sleeping, she enjoyed herself digging for grubs in the lawn (term used loosely), rolling around and watching birds fly overhead.

I also shot some video from a window, but have yet to edit it. Photos are so much easier to manage, but I may put a couple of short clips together tomorrow.

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