This shot of a fox cub was taken by Ian Stickland with a Canon EOS 20D and 400mm lens. A new county park is being created in his local area, and Ian has been getting to know the guy doing most of the work. He gave Ian a tip off about the location of the cubs. Ian said "When they're young the cubs are very curious and don't mind you being there too much so I spent about an hour laying in the grass just watching. The photo shows one of the braver ones coming to investigate".

He added: "We keep an eye on them just to make sure they're doing okay. Last year the site was fairly devoid of people, this year it's much busier, and the cubs have been disturbed and moved. We know their new location but one cub has died. Hopefully in a month or so they'll be big enough to follow Mum more, and at that point we'll try to get some more photos".
