Most definitely wolf Guy, Wolves really are not the terror of the night that the.... " One in the Red Hood "..... would make them out to be.

How difficult are they to find? We don't have them over here, but I've always had the impression they're difficult.

Jack I have three packs that live in the bush around my house, they hunt the lands around here and end their nights right in my yard or close to it many nights this last summer. and I get nothing from them.. Ive tried quite hard.. sightings are rare unless they have pray down. My mission this winter is to get way more of them. but yes ...all but impossible to put a lens on. not sure just how I got this last one. he was just curios I think and I got in the middle of the pack last week. I don't bait as such but I'm not against using hole animals like deer hit on the roads by cars. better than them going to waist in the ditch.

I love your fox photos most of all, I just cant get a shot of one much over here, as they are feral and a pest here they have learned to be very wary of humans although this past winter they seem less bothered by us. Ours never look as pretty as yours do either. Ive just returned from a holiday in Cambodia and have not had a DSLR in my hands for a while, (took small mirrorless fuji) and Im itching to get out with the 7DII again. :-) Still think its a great all rounder and probably out does my 5DIII for versatility, you really make this camera shine. I showed someone your flickr images once and they swore you had to be using a 1DX or full frame, no idea why

Thanks. I think many would count you insanely lucky (or even insanely unlucky :) ) to get them in your yard. I'll look forward to seeing more shots of these. And, yeah, I've loved your fox photos too - and the martens.

I too think the fox around here have something different in their looks, In the beginning of my camera craze I had to shoot with some stiff competition, those getting the covers of the mag's, all though they never shared a thing with me about cameras they made me work harder to get the great shots or as great as I could make them.
I would love to use a 1DxII but I have only ever touched one once to look through it to see it from the inside lol. so I'm stuck using my 7DII of which this last week did the most damage to it as I have ever done to a camera, doing landscape of all thing's. I fell getting across from one rock to another and smashed my poor 7DII very hard. I was sure it was in peaces. But it was not, and the lens was ok but it now has the most scares of any camera I have ever owned. It really looked quite new right before.
and I'm a one camera guy so it scared the wits out of me to think I lost my camera for a water and rock shot. So yes everything I shoot is from the 7DII... all though it now has scrapes right down through the paint and some of the metal. kinda embarrassing really. but its all I have. Thanks for showing off my flickr , the honour makes the paint seem trivial.

In real life Jack they stop at Insane lol. Luck is something we all make for ourselves. Don't forget about the critter magnet... its still working fine. The best part is I have 3 4T ext drives full of foxes hooked up to the mac so I can process foxes till the cows come home. This female is a story and a half.. I must start a book in her honour

Yes..... there are foxes , lots of them really. But the world got tired of seeing them so I have not persuade them as I once did. Wolves still hold a mystery and intrigue so I guess you could say I'm exploring them now lol. Not that the fox is off my radar just trying to find something people still wish to see.

Well, I haven't gotten tired in seeing them. I live in the desert so out of about 20 times, I'm lucky to get some wildlife keepers. My camera is pretty busted up from climbing around on the rocks. I like the battle damage.

Keep up the great photography!

Great wording for it. Maybe it is character.. Like it could tell a story or two.. Honestly mine could. But I think I'll adopt your attitude..

While having a 1DXII might be a cool thing to try, you give all of us a great bar to shoot for... Your work with the 7DII is inspiring! I don't think it would matter too much which camera you used - your work is amazing and I love seeing your pics on here - whether they are fox, loon, marten, moose or wolf (I especially love the wolf as I have been told by three shaman that the wolf and bear are my spirit animals :-)

Please keep sharing your images as they give me a lofty goal of what I may be able to achieve. I enjoy them all!

I can tell you this animal was the biggest thrill to meet and shoot. he gave me such a sense of ease and calmness !! I was very close as he came to me but not at any point did I feel aggression. Only him studying me for a moment. Its a moment in time every real wildlife photographer should experience. I found it hard to concentrate and just wanted to watch lol. half way through my wife and I looked at each other and were grinning very intensely lol

Great description of what I'm sure was a thrilling moment! I've had a couple of experiences like that in my life - but they happened prior to my deciding to learn photography :-) Now I hope to repeat them with camera in hand. I'll find them - I just have to be patient!

Now the Foxes are a completely different experience. there is no fear factor.. No... will this animal tear my limbs off... Fun like no other but the hight of adrenalin is just not the same, although I've seen people loose their faculties thats for sure.

I'm not sure how many faculties I have left to offer for that kind of experience! I guess the answer would depend on whom you ask.....
I can certainly understand why some people would go slightly nuts over that opportunity. Animals are amazing and can teach us a lot. I enjoy getting out and finding them when I can - and enjoying nature even when I can't!
