Foxy Lady by lauriehiggins

Foxy Lady

It was so ridiculously cold today that I almost didn't go out for a photo. But then I couldn't resist and visited two different beaches. Brrr! As I was backing out of the parking lot of the second beach, I saw this beauty in my rear view mirror, so I quickly changed lenses and chased her. My hands were shaking so hard from the cold that I'm amazed I got a passable shot. But I'm so glad I braved the cold. Foxes are very camera shy, so this is only my second one in two years and the other one was much futher away.
Oh I am so jealous!! What a wonderful, unexpected treat. So glad you captured it!

Its gorgeous, I think it's good you got your photo even in the snow! It really contrasts the colors. I have a pair that live behind my house, they had kits last spring :)
January 24th, 2013  
This is an awesome shot!
January 24th, 2013  
Beautiful! Definitely worth braving the cold for. I've still never seen one back home!
January 24th, 2013  
wow! It turned out perfect!
January 24th, 2013  
Excellent and glad you ventured out., look at her eyes! Gorgeous! Fav
January 24th, 2013  
I'm surprised he didn't flee and disappear! He must have known you wanted to show his beauty here!

January 24th, 2013  
She is a beauty. Just look at her fluffy tail
January 24th, 2013  
You are capturing some stunning images Laurie. SO glad you came back:) Another fav for me. How beautiful.
January 24th, 2013  
A beautiful capture! What 300mm were you using?
January 24th, 2013  
@aspada The lens says "Canon Zoom Lens EF 75-300mm 1:4 - 5.6." Hope that answers your question. Obviously, I'm not very good at the technical stuff yet. That's one of my year three goals - to actually learn how to use my camera.
January 24th, 2013  
Beautiful! I love foxes, but have never found myself with an opportunity to capture them.
January 24th, 2013  
What a beautiful shot! I have a fox in my 365 project as well but the picture is blurry. They are all around my neighborhood. I get concerned about pets being out at night..
January 24th, 2013  
I'm also jealous. I'm sucha fox lover but have only seen them a few times while were driving. Gorgeous!
January 24th, 2013  
Very nice.
January 24th, 2013  
Well...wasn't that nice of him to come to your rescue? Beautiful shot.
January 24th, 2013  
awwww so cute. great capture!
January 24th, 2013  
great chasing skills, maybe it was frozen on the spot! Fabulous image, it is staring straight at you! faved
January 24th, 2013  
That is a perfect shot! I photographed foxes at the beach here last summer! Before then, I never knew they liked beaches! I am glad you braved the cold! It was worth it! =)
January 24th, 2013  
Beautiful animal, I love the shot!
January 24th, 2013  
Magnificent! FAVE! Hey I was going to ask if you would be available to go to a BW winter shoot on Saturday with the Plymouth Camera Club (sometimes other clubs invite our club to events), but it is going to be too cold I think. Pity. :-(
January 24th, 2013  
She's beautiful, Laurie! Don't get too close, though, okay? Nice, clear shot!
January 24th, 2013  
what an amazing capture Laurie - love this shot - great timing
January 24th, 2013  
So glad you chased it down, great shot!
January 25th, 2013  
Perfect pose -- you must have been incredibly patient to capture this, or incredibly lucky, but in any case, it's beautifully captured.

Great shot, I have a couple of foxes that live at the end of my garden but have only managed a phone shot so far. Congrats on this wonderfully clear shot.
January 26th, 2013  
another fav! i am so jealous! i would love to get a photo of a fox!
January 26th, 2013  
@russianblue The first time I saw a fox, I stopped my car in the middle of the road and grabbed my camera from the passenger seat. Unfortunately, I forgot to put my Jeep in park and had to jump back in before it rolled away. Those fox photos were too blurry to post.
January 26th, 2013  
@5unflow3r It was terribly cold today, but let me know the next time an opportunity like this comes up. Me thinks we are overdue for a meetup, my friend!
January 26th, 2013  
@lauriehiggins long overdue!
January 26th, 2013  
Wow what a marvellous capture, well done .

@sparkle @russianblue Thank you so much!
February 1st, 2013  
Top 20 baby!!! something's workin! beautiful work!!
February 1st, 2013  
@stepheesue Honestly, I was so blown away. But the thing that struck me the most is that I never would have even seen this sight or taken this photo if I hadn't rejoined 365. I would have been sitting at home, all warm and cozy, instead of freezing my fingers off and chasing a fox. Just capturing this reaffirmed my resolve.
February 2nd, 2013  
YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations on the top 20!
February 2nd, 2013
