Through my observations as I walked the fields in my local area I discoverd a fox earth. It was confirmed by the small remnants of chewed feathers which had that very distictive fox scent all over them, along with the trampled ground around the entrances to their den.
It was a moment that I will never forget, a constant reminder of why this type of photography is just so rewarding.
There were three cubs which played for a while before spotting me. They were curious and even came closer to check me out.
Getting a clean shot was a challenge as the nettles covered their faces for the most of the time.
