Good Afternoon,

Cross-post from Adapted Lenses:

A local young fox on the prowl; E-M1 with adapted Canon FDn 500mm f4.5 L (MF) up in front, supported by
a Jobu gimbal mounted to my kayak.

Regards,

Edd

It's amazing for me to think that this animal which from my American POV is "exotic" is just hanging out around your house.

It makes me wonder if there's an equivalent animal native to my area that others would view as exotic. I know that when I was in Costa Rica a few years back that a raccoon (which is an animal that I occasionally encounter on my way to work) drew quite a crowd of onlookers.

I found this house finch in my yard, it was probably sick because it didn't want to move.

Behind the fence in the garden was this lovely creature.

The snake went and hid under the tomato plants and I left the 2 alone. Later in the day I found the finch dead, unconsumed, but with the neck feathers missing or disturbed.

This morning's drive for work yielded these two fawns. There were actually three but it was was harder to get the three in the frame together in the time I had.

The fawn in the front has a pretty severe wound on it's rear hip, probably from a car or coyote entanglement. Despite that, the fawn seemed to walk just fine. Hopefully it will be able to heal and will go on to live a normal life.

This is the wounded fawn's good side, which initially is how it presented itself. I watched it walk with it's siblings for a few moments and didn't notice any injury or limp at all. I was in my car on the side of the road. After I took a few images they began to walk away from me so I put the camera down and began to drive away. As I began to merge into traffic I noticed they were about to crest a hill and there were circular bales in the field behind them which presented an opportunity for a more interesting shot. I pulled to the side of the road one more time and it was then that I was able to catch the injury on side of the fawn. I had no idea it was even there until I downloaded the images to my computer.
