Formby Fox

I recently called into Formby Point to photograph some red squirrels. However, the squirrels were soon forgotten when a vixen appeared and put on a great display to a gathering crowd. She slowly worked her way through the pine forest which gave a good opportunity to get some shots in dfferent lights and against different backgrounds. She came so close at time that I needed to switch to a 300mm lens just to get head shots. Here are a colection of some of those images. Great to watch one of these animals at such close quarters in daylight
and a head shot, she seems to be suffering with a bit of a tick infestations around her ears.

Beautiful shots. Although looking through your blog I can tell that ALL your shots are great. I was just looking at Shirl's blog and saw your link. Really glad I visited!

Excelent photos Rich, glad to see the fox is still doing well.

I am jealous of the great light you had, It was really dull and overcast last time I went (enough of the excuses).

Beautiful shots in great settings.

This vixen looks as though she got into the coal bin. Her forelegs are black. Poor thing. Wish I could pull those ticks. Makes my ears itch just seeing them. UGH
