Daylight Fox

I have Foxes that regularly visit the garden. I put out peanuts for them each evening and have had up to six at one time. Photographing them isn't easy as they usually appear at dusk when the natural light is poor. Occasionally they turn up at different times, but usually don't hang around long enough to get any shots. Yesterday one appeared at lunchtime and was quite obliging. I grabbed the camera and although I had the wrong lens on and the light wasn't too good, I managed a few shots through the kitchen window.

please be careful around them. if critters such as foxes and raccoons start appearing during the middle of the day, there's a very good chance they have rabies. we had a raccoon do this all of a sudden and i could only imagine it was infected.

How beautiful...I see them here, but they are always moving quickly through the woods.

Great images steve, very lucky to have these visiting your garden. The catch light on the eyes is fantastic.

Not a problem over here texwisgirl.
Cheers Ashley, it's taken a few years but I now have this place like a mini nature reserve. Just built a permenant hide... more on that in the next few days.
