Rural Fox - Vixen - MarcoPesaresi

When it comes to photographing Wildlife then it would be true to say "Never expect the expected and always expect the unexpected” this next set of images was an unexpected bonus for me,  I was out and about in Wales when I came across this beautiful Fox, it was the last thing I was expecting to see and I have to say that I was really lucky, it was a case of being in the right place at the right time.

I was photographing birds from a bird watching hide when this beautiful Fox made an appearance.

I could not believe my luck when she started to come a little closer, a truly beautiful creature and such a privilege to be in its presence, these next few shots clearly indicate that she has recently had a litter of cubs so she was probably on the hunt for food to take back to her den so that she could cater for her new offspring.

I continued to photograph as she got even closer which eventually resulted in a rather close portrait shot, but alas she did not stay around for long and no sooner had she appeared she was gone,  I was so lucky to have this opportunity of a close encounter with one of the most beautiful wild creatures that we have here in the UK.
