Lazy Boy

Posted by Lee (Fort Frances Ontario, Canada) on 6 March 2011 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Had opportunity to roam around the countryside yesterday. It was a great day for a drive. Managed to spot this fox just loafing and lounging atop a bale of hay in the afternoon sun.

I am out of practice, shortly after stopping to snap this shot, it got up and walked away. I watched it for several minutes. I even changed to my extra strong lens. Grabbed a few shots, nothing to exciting. The fox was now a very long way from me. I switched to the lens I normally leave on the camera and was about to drive away. Wouldn't you know it, the fox did the infamous jump in the air and plunge into the snow after a mouse.
I MISSED THE SHOTS! I know much better than that. Boy am I out of practice.
