I went back out at 4am today to see if I could get some decent shots of this Kit fox family.
It paid off.
I brought my chair, camo netting and my gear and sat about 100 ft away or so from their den just before sunrise.
They were up but not near me, however in minutes they came to the den and went about their business. Here are the first few I processed from this morning. These are all HEAVY crops as I only have a 100-400 and 7d.

Last shot I took. I stood up to leave and mom didnt like that. The second step I took was too much for her and she went underground.

Well done, love that early morning light. They really are alert, and with those big ears, I'm sure they could hear a pin drop. Beautiful set.

Thanks guys.
It was an early start, but well worth it.
I just wish the 7d was better with noise.
I couldnt drop my shutter speed more as I dont have a tripod so I was pushing it.
The lens is sharpest at 7.1 so I couldnt drop to 5.6 to get more light.
So I had to take what I could get. The images are noisy to me, but usable.

I hope the next 7d equivalent does much better with noise or a bunch of money falls into my hands so I can get a 500 f4. That would all less cropping and more light at the same time. Sounds like a winner. LOL, but not on a teacher's salary.:p

hope ya don't mind my input here. These images will pop more if you brighten them and do a cool white balance. you can do a noise reduction on them as well. the edit I did....changed it just enough to make it "pop" more...but it didn't change the feel of the morning shot.

I know this isn't the critique section....so I feel odd mentioning this here. I just wanted you to know You have some great shots here with the potential to make them look better.

My only editing computer right now is a macbook pro. The angle of thr screen changes the brightness of the photo. I need to update my desktop.

I need to work on my post process flow for sure.
But for now I just like getting the shots and seeing the critters in nature.
