Chester County Day located in Chester County, Pennsylvania, USA has become a yearly tradition for generations of Chester County residents and visitors. This year was it’s 73rd year! Usually held on the first October weekend, Chester County Day starts off with an early morning fox hunt. These two riders were chatting together in a scenic stetting, apart from the other riders, while waiting for the hunt to begin.

  • PLEASE NOTE * This ritual is done for sport only. If the dogs do pick up a scent, they follow the fox until it goes into the Earth – a foxhole! There is no violence whatsoever!

This photograph was shot with a Canon 40D, equipped with a 18-200mm lens in Warwick, PA. USA.

My life is like a well read book that’s never ending, at least for this moment in time. As I continually add new chapters to my book, I find that my photography plays a big part in it. This is most especially true as my great love and fascination with Mother Naure never wanes. It’s my hope that you, too, will share my joy as the pages in my book of life continue to flip forward! My Very Best, Polly Peacock

    This song by STING is the story of two foxes being chased by the hounds and their love for each other…
