Haha, too cool, I've never posted and got a vid of a guy's friends before in a reply cheers too kind. That's properly lovely Jeff thank you (put a massive smile on my face mate that has)


Jeff I bumble about in a field with a blummin big wabbit,if there are other folks other togs,there ain't no wabbit.

So I'm really out of me depth in these situations Jeff,if I'm honest mate I try not to judge, folks here don't know Jeff. If noone has ever made them think about the implications no one had educated it is unfair for me to judge.... I had a guy turn up here clever educated man,38 years old...stu is that an onion you are growing?? he had never seen one Jeff alive Folks think meat comes in a plastic bag, here,not that it was once a beautiful animal . So I try to be pragmatic,but I do scream inside. I got to make images of some fairly tame boar kids Jeff,they are two groups,their mums killed by crossbows,because they are being drawn to the roads for food,basically put out by humans,well meaning but ignorant of the implications. Boar are being poached here due to the monetary value. Watching two kids bed down together and knowing mum should be present or one of their number running around screaming because he lost the group,haunts me mate. I'm soft as they come in some ways Jeff,a realist in others,I know these pigs need managing. But I struggle with mom and kids being split up before the kids are really ready,because of the feediing making the poaching so easy

Hey ho I'd love to shoot in more snow ,that last image of you and the fox is wonderful. Here's a couple of those boar kids having a spat

I agree with you Tom, The super cold can produce some very sharp as well as pristine images. .....If you dress correctly throwing fashion to the wind..... lol
We had the system go through here as well MedicineMan. It was snowing so hard you could not see but a few feet in front of you.
I believe this should be my new logo if only I knew how to do it.

Come on, own up - you had a nice piece of raw meat or a chicken sandwich in your pocket! But how wonderful to be so close to a wild creature that doesn't feel threatened by your presence - and isn't, itself, a threat. Are the vixens more tolerant than the dog foxes?

Thus the reason I don't post more stuff like this. I don't bait any animals for their company or my images. This is one group of foxes I have fed but the reason was I needed something to administer the Meds in. She looked like this ( image 1) a few times in her life and I medicated them to save their lives. Thus the reason they have no fear of me. I believe its 5 times in her life time. I guess I should do a thread on Mange and wildlife so I don't have to explain lol
I just spilled the beans on this just shortly ago. Its nothing special.. just a guy saving some foxes. Sometimes against the laws wishes.
They are like a house dog. once you get to know them. and no male female all the same.
Again the after shot a year or so later.

I’m sure I would think the same if some one posted every wild critter big and small in Canada at close range. Honesty I just walk up to them and shoot lol it’s that simple. I guess it’s about maximizing every second your in the company of wildlife. Some shoot a few images and play on the make of their camera. I just shoot using the details inside the view finder. That’s how I get 682 images of a Lynx in 12 mins or 1200 of a fox I’ve seen for 16. Here where I live you in counter wildlife and then it’s gone. Getting great images that make you smile while processing.... well that’s up to the shooter.
It is normal to think baited but here where I live only the outsiders find the need.

lol Yes it is me Charles. I did this shot on purpose to make it look like I was shooting way over there when the fox was right in front of me. My shooting partner took the Image.
I remember she came up to me so I motioned to my buddy to take the shot.

Your question and reactions are just what I was looking for from this shot lol. Kind of like the sly fox getting close without my knowing

Well I am happy to know I did not disappoint you Jeff! ;-)a

I had no idea you did this Jeff. Do you have any veterinary training of any kind? Or are you just another Dr. Doolittle where you talk to the animals and they talk back to you?? ;-)a

What kind of wildlife photographer am I? Well, I came to photography pretty late in life, as I had neither the patience nor expertise for analogue cameras. The patience is still a problem, and a handicap for successful wildlife shooting - I want that photo, and I want it NOW! So, I guess I am a machine gunner, rather than a sniper, on the basis that, if I hold the button down long enough and often enough, I might get a keeper.

Pondrader to be honest, here in my hills if a fox ever got that close we'd be freaking about rabies!

Jeff, I think it's amazing you know how to do that.... that's how the wolf species was domesticated.. human kindness.

You know how much I admire your photos... so sad your camera is causing you problems. You are one of the good guys...


Thank you for taking the time to contribute so much to POTN.
