Fox and Owl



On the way back from Yakumo we stopped at Onuma just before sunset. It was dark and snowing. A pair of Black Woodpecker were around as were 2 staples, Red Fox and Ural Owl.


Here you can see the difference between landscape and portrait mode, both uncropped.



500mm is generally not the ideal focal length for Red Foxes.............



Well I was wondering where this winter's snow was. It's a raging blizzard outside with more forescast tonight and tomorrow so time for a few jobs around the house.....................

  1. The fox looks in very good condition, so I guess it's prey species must be plentyful? Unlike the tatty examples we get locally.

    1. They look much better in winter, in summer they are pretty scrawny.
