A fox forages in a new mown meadow

The fox has picked up my scent!

This young fox was out hunting this evening in a new mown meadow, exactly where I'd seen him last evening.... but this time I had my camera!

I was unable to get downwind of him, so before long as he walked toward me, he started sniffing the air although not panicking at all.

Eventually when he was only a few feet from me he moved off with a sense of urgency.... only to go and lie in the grass 50 meteres away and look toward where I was secreted in the hedge.

Always a treat to get this close to wildlfe and be accepted or maybe just tolerated!
