Here’s a little trip down memory lane, a photo shoot with one of my favourite foxes , Peanuts. She was a regular visitor and over a few months we built up a bond of trust. She would approach me with no fear but always maintained a short distance , normally around two metres. We would both sit on my drive and reassuringly she would run for cover if anyone else arrived. Peanuts loved peanuts, hence the name .But she would also never shy away from an egg.
The images were taken about 8 o’clock pm , with me lying on the ground using a flash gun to black out the background, It was still daylight and the flash didn’t seem to bother Peanuts at all. Obviously you have to be very careful using flash photography at night with nocturnal animals.
Here’s my photo of the week , the Grey Squirrel. This individual is one of a family group that live at the Meadow Hide. The Grey is certainly devices opinion but for me , this most visible of our wild mammals is entertaining and charming.
