It sucks big time that some people have such low self esteem and so little talent of their own that they will appropriate the work of others to pass off as their work.

With regard to Jeff's fox (and other critters) photos, he has spent so much time and patience getting familiar with his subjects, and they reward him with beautiful poses and a comfortableness that is abundantly evident. The ones with kits especially move me, as I know how protective their mothers are about them, and Jeff must have so much trust earned from the vixens to get that close to their babies.

When I wrote my husbandry manual for the red fox, I asked Jeff if I could use some of his photos in the manual, and he was very gracious in allowing me to do so... and I made sure he got full credit for each and every one of them. If he had have said no, then I would have respected that... I know how hard getting decent photos of foxes is... lol!

All the above said... it takes a very special blend of talent, patience, and ease with one's subjects to get the type of photos Jeff gets... and much kudos to him for sharing them with us. He's one of those special people that it is a priviledge to have gotten to know some through his passion for these stunning critters...

Well thanks T, I think I have the perfect Image for you.. lol The world is a strange place and we all just have to go with the flow or it will run you over. People stealing images off the internet is never going to stop so I know if I post something its out there for the world to take for their own. There's I'm sure dozens of guys on here having there images used by others in an unauthorized manner.

On the positive side people all over the world now can protect each other by letting us know and taking action as one person did from the Netherlands. To her I'm grateful. Super person. O and I'm still waiting from the hard copy lol. Thanks for the chance to be in the Book. would not have missed it .

Something from the past ... It was a blast

Some of the toughest shooting the 7DII ever had to do

That photo has my eyes leaking with love and happiness... there's just something about animals doing their natural thing in their natural habitat... and babies are just the best!

I've had the opportunity to hand raise kits myself, and while it's an amazing opportunity to get up close and personal with them, there is something even more special about seeing them carrying on with their antics naturally... you are truly blessed, and for that I'm eternally grateful for the opportunity to "share" your experiences through your images... thank you!!!!!

Fantastic shot. Love the light. I can't imagine the effort needed to get into position to take a shot like that.

what you can't see and hear is the Mosquitos.. 100's of thousands of them on you trying to suck every last drop of blood from your body. The noise of it all along with the
claustrophobia of being covered head to toe, shooting through screen can be a challenge. but as you can see, very much worth it. The noise will drive most people out of the bush.
