Holy *10 minutes of swearing* ... those images looks amazing. It’s always hard to get exposure and sharpness good enough to make the eyes reflect so well, it gives your subject amazing life like quality. How close did you get to the fox?
@L0n3Gr3yW0lf
Thanks for your attention, it is a well-known area in the Netherlands, because some foxes come very close to the people. if you do not make unexpected movements, they will even smell your bag or there is no food in it. a matter of staying very quiet, you have enough time for a nice shot. the distance was 10-20m

That's less close then I expected but given the Panny Leica 200mm f 2.8 with the 1.4x TC it shouldn't surprise me ... I'm still getting used to the 280mm focal length of my Panny Leica 50-200mm f 2.8-4 with the 1.4x TC. Haven't gotten a chance to test it with foxes yet, I think the reverse of the COVID-19 lockdown is starting to scare them off now. That's some gorgeous light you found yourself in as well :)

Found him hiding in the backyard under the shade of our canopy. Mom must have stashed him while running around the bushes somewhere.

Battling atmospheric disturbance (and mosquitoes). From an early herd of about 6000 caribou migrating along the Meliadine River, Nunavut. I’m about 2km distant. Need that 150-400/4.5! 4k video from EM1X workers well. Will post that if possible.

Another one of those "not-particularly-useful" examples of HHHR. Finally had luck finding a fox in a freshly cut grass field, foxes love those because new cut grass leaves a lot of the bugs and slugs exposed after losing their habitat so plenty of "free lunch". Unfortunately, the fox was on the opposite side of the field and I didn't have time to get any closer, it was spooked after about a minute anyways:
From Google Maps, I trust the accuracy of this representation:

At full view, there isn't much difference between the two.

At 1:1 view the 50 Megapickles is holding up better in terms of details in the fur.

At 2:1 it's more evident that the normal 20 MP has the fur texture more blocky while the 50 MP has more edges to the fur, but even still the Panny Leica 50-200mm f 2.8-4 with 1.4x TC is pushing the lens past it's ideal IQ on both 20 MP and 50 MP.
I can't wait for the Olympus 150-400mm f 4.5 Pro, I am hoping I can get more details and rendition at the 300-400mm range but if it can't compete for resolution in the centre of the frame (you can't be greedy when looking at a zoom of that range) with Olympus 300mm f 4 Pro then I will got with the latter one at the sacrifice of 2/3 of light.

PS. Question for the admin or any moderator: why are the pictures from my screen looking so dull and colourless on the forum. They are sRGB both the RAW file and the editing coulour space and yet when I screen capture the images look so much different then on my OLED screen. Is there any way I can fix this?

A screen capture will tag with the system colour space, not the editing colour space. Might be an explanation ... ?
Very true. Windows 10 should be sRGB by default space colour:

Thought the default colour profile is the factory calibrated by ASUS and I don't know what settings that one has sRGB, AdobeRGB, DCI-P3 (the website advertisement):

There's only one colour profile in the Windows Display Settings. It does make sharing my pictures a bit fustrating to be honest.

Some wild beasts of the rodent type

Did I see someone put a nut on my stump?

I stopped the truck to take a photo of a wildflower and as I stepped out I saw this right beside me.

The pine squirrel was moving a rather mature kit. I had the 12-60 lens on but she was very close to me.

She looked at me for what seemed like a minute or two so I looked away and she took off.

This is the Gunnison's Prairie Dog. I wonder if he is going to serve that with a little sage.

Many people around here consider these a nuisance but I really like them I just wish they would slow down a bit for photo-ops.

Daawwwww ... everything was so cute ... until the last picture. Amazing pictures though, thank you for sharing, I need more cuteness in my life right now.
That squirrel mom sure looks like she would need one of these:
