What a way to end 36 hours of no sleep (sleep problems). This morning, coming home from work I got more lucky then I could have hoped:

Poor little guy, so skinny, so hungry.

This tree is not big enough for all 3 of us.

Bun bun:

Unfortunately it’s slightly out of focus, the camera had trouble telling the bunny apart from the baby corn (they are both vegetarians?)

At first I just saw a nice flower with sunlight breaking brought the trees on it as it shake in the wind, with a nice sleepy fly on it ... only later I realised there was a pink spider eating the flies head ... and the black bug was like: “Is it Monday or Sunday, what a morning”

And then the worst of them all, Assholus Maximus .... the Devil’s own bastard creation, The One Who Shall Not Be Not Treated Like A Drag Queen.

Are you bored of baby fox pictures yet? I hope not because I caught these images today on the way home. As many of you know, I have been watching a fox den in hopes of catching the mom and her babies together. It's become a tougher task than I anticipated. I did learn something today that surprised me. For weeks I've been watching one entrance to the den. Well, today I found out there are at least three entrances within 50 yards of one another. Over the next few days or weeks I'll now be keeping a closer eye on activity 'in the vicinity' of the openings so as not to be out foxed.

Below are images of two different babies today. The top two images are of one of them, and the last one who looks like she's posing for a senior picture is another.

Your pictures are amazing, as usual ... and there's is no such thing as too many baby pictures ... of any kind :p

I love the first one so much, it shows the intrinsic nature of younglings (damn you Prequel Star Wars for getting this word stuck in my brain for the rest of my, personal, eternity) of any species. And it's made perfect by the very well exposed eye to show the reflection of what the fox was looking at.

Keep looking out for them and don't let any restraining orders (from their mom :p ) from making beautiful pictures .

Time for some mountain goats.

They often look at you like you have 2 heads while traipsing through their domain -

So they drink, swear and when they get itchy noses they ready up for a fight? :p
(PS. I am guessing you made the images with vintage glass, something at 200 to 400mm, single or possibly multi-coated but not the best of quality? That rendition feels typical for such lenses)
I use an EM5 with a Panasonic Lumix 45-200...the 2nd frame is heavily cropped...shot at about 100m (handheld).

Wow ... if I'm wrong I am very wrong :p ... strang rendition though, the direction of light looks around high noon (every single Overwatch characters started running in terror at the sound of THE WHISTLE :p ) so there should be plenty of light for high shutter speed and low ISO with even a bit of stop down on the aperture. Well, I should get back my Panny 45-200mm (that was kindly donated by a fellow community member when I was in bad need) from a failed attempt of evilBay listing and I will test and compare that lens with my Panny Leica 50-200mm out of curiosity.

Hi..it probably was late morning...used shutter priority, but haven't got the exit to hand (I use LR4 and then export to Google photos which eradicated the data!!). When I next load the PC I'll dig the exit out.

I used to have an Olympus 40-150... until I dropped it! The Panny is a more flexible lens imho...no perceived loss at 200..but you have to be more precise with focussing.

Have now found the original exit...on shutter priority..1/4000, iso 1000 f5.6

Not sure why it would need iso 1000..?

1/4000 is quite high for bunnies, probably why it pushed your ISO to 1000 (though it shouldn’t look to bad even 1000). Maybe it was Auto ISO.
