I photographed this Red Fox in May as she hunted the fields at Phoebe's breeders house. I was behind a tree with most of my body hidden and I tried to be as still as possible while I clicked the shutter. She was intent on hunting grasshoppers and insects in the long grass. Even though I was using my Canon 300 mm lens with a 1.4 teleconverter, she got close enough in this photo to be just about frame-filling. I felt very privledged to be able to watch her and share her world for a little while.
