I had crossed paths with this Gray Fox earlier in the morning as it tried, unsuccessfully, to go after a ground squirrel making its alarm call. About an hour later it crossed in front me and ended up sitting on a section of a boulder in the sun, where it took a brief nap.

Excellent shot Ed, and nice story how it crossed your path :)

Hi Kit.
Beautiful shot, fantastic subject, nice positioning (timing) shows power and grace of movement, excellent detail, lovely bokeh, did I mention it is beautiful!

Cheers, Graham.

Well, if you prefer less distinctly vegetable food...

...as our safari ranger in Sabi Sands said, "I will only stop for an impala if I see it on a tree"...

Hi Kit.
Very nice shot, my personal feeling is you don’t need a raw meat spoiler on a “carnivores in the wild” thread, this is nature at its most normal! A good day for the leopard, not so much for the impala.

Cheers, Graham.
