The foxes usually turn up at 7:45pm on the dot…this time they arrived so early they were watching us…! It’s only been a week but the opportunties and quality of the shots we could get has improved massively.

Lets be honest…no photo taken at ISO 25600, f4 at 600mm with a shutter reading in the viewfinder of LO is going to be ‘good’. In fact when viewing these at %100 my reaction was along the lines of ‘bluuurrggghhh’. However, the fact the D3 could lock focus when I myself was even finding it hard to make out the foxes is something to be impressed by and has allowed me to capture the first shots in what will hopefully become a successful project to photograph foxes in the wild.
