That is extremely well done, Dessie!

I especially appreciate the even light that falls over the fox and the hare (or rabbit?), as well as the fact that no vegetation is blocking the important parts of the fox's face, or the prey. . The parts of the image that I am most interested in show up so nice and clear and with no distractions or shadows - how wonderful!

I am assuming that the fox is Vulpes vulpes, as I believe that is the only fox species in Ireland. . You did shoot this in Ireland, did you not?

I would like to know more about the prey - do you happen to know what species of Lagomorph it is?

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Love foxes and following them as they grow up. You got a nice reward with that shot!
