Red Fox

A few shots of a stunning and very healthy looking red fox taken in the reed beds at the London WWT Wetlands centre.  As you can see from one of the shots, the fox was feeding on what looked like a very large black bird but due to the reed beds the bird was difficult to ID.

Parental Responsibilities

We have a nest box outside which is currently being noisily occupied by a number of great tit chicks.  As the adults were constantly going back and forward to the bird box to feed the chicks it presented me with the opportunity to capture them in flight.  I set my camera up on my tripod and using a wireless shutter remote I simply sat and waited.
