I found this Red fox last weekend in Langdon, Alberta.  She was hunting mice in a farm field. alongside the highway.  A couple of times she came relatively close to the fence.  I really liked this image from one of these nearby encounters.  I’m heading there this afternoon to see if I can find her, or one of the three Snowy owls I saw last Sunday, again.

  7. Impressive! I stared at the picture for a while, just to realize it is a photo and not something artefact. So nice! Thanks again for these beautiful moments.

    • Void comment. Just enlarged image to get a closer look. Great capture!! The hay roll in the background makes it look at first as though he is playing with it… 😊

  12. A great “decisive moment!” Of course, most good photos have to do with the decisive moment, with still-lifes, macros, and scenic as the exception.
