Paparazzi Snap Fox!  by John Hooton

Last night I found the contents of a garbage bag dragged along the back yard of my South London home, so I decided to catch the culprit tonight after his evening of celebrating.

Just gone midnight young Brer Fox turned up. “Who me?” said his look and with a quiet pop he was immortalised by the Fox Paparazzi forever!

    Sprung!! What innocent eyes though. I’ll bet he didn’t hang around.

  • You are right Gail, although bold, this young fellow was pretty jumpy. He is no pushover!

    He even gave you a good back drop!! Tell me this is NOT staged!!! Some people have ALL the talent!!!. :) xx

  • Hi Elaine. Well I did need some cunning so I put a bowl of food down (which I have removed in CS3) and I used my computer to control the camera via Nikon’s Camera Control Pro software. The camera was prefocused at 0.8m. You are right – staged!! :-)) xx
