was it worth sitting in the rain for 45 minutes?

    I got absolutely drenched waiting for the cubs to appear on Sunday, a good 45 minutes sat in the rain with 2 camo covers protecting the body and lens and as soon as it stopped they pop their little heads out of their den.

    I'm not happy about these shots so I'll be spending the bank holiday weekend there trying to get some shots in better light and hopefully in focus this time.

    First the adults come out

    Then a cub appears

    Still very young as they still have blue eyes and black fur

    Then both appear and for a few moments all is right with the World.
    as badly composed and exposed this shot is it was worth getting drowned for.

    Where are they?

    The whole family of Foxes take care of the little ones, mum, dad and any older brothers and sisters

    Absolutely, 100%, worth it! No question!! I don't think I've ever seen a shot of one young enough to still have the blue eyes. It's very striking. Really enjoyed this series, and look forward to seeing what you get next time.

    Looks great, and it was well worth it!

    I like the individual shots of the little ones. Great composure.
