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.

JAGUAR of the Pantanal; we are at ten meters, and the prey (a crocodile) in the grass right in front of us. Very impressive through the viewfinder !!!
Excellent shot MarCath,
Did you see many jaguars while in the Pantanal?
Somewhere I've never been, but hope to once work no longer demands my time!
