Fox by Steve Lobley

This fox was taken at a chemical plant on the edge of Southampton Water. Steve got the shot using a Canon EOS 300D fitted with a Canon 100-400 IS (ISO 100 setting at F8).

Steve said: "Chemical plants are not all bad. We do have our fair share of wildlife, in fact more than many people realise. The first sightings of a fox family were in June 2005, they then disappeared into the surrounding 'green zone' around the factory for several weeks. Early in the morning this youngster had been sitting on a grass bank watching the first of the days arrivals. I parked a distance away and then slowly edged closer. Once within range I carefully raised the lens, maintaining eye contact all the time. The long lens enabled me to fill the frame without stressing the fox. The animal remained relaxed, in fact so much so, that when I turned to move away it began to follow me. It is now often there in the morning and seems to perk up when I point the camera in its direction. Who can resist one more photo of such a beautiful and contented looking creature."
