Gray Fox returns for more goodys

9 posts in this topic

This fox just can't get enough bird seed or mice and even some cat food. This time I was able to set up my blind and get a few good shots but this guy is tough to shoot because he only has one eye and he is always moving his head to see whats making ANY noise. He really hates loud Harleys and heads right to the woods when they come by.

Jim, I'm happy to see you were ready this time. You nailed "ole one-eye" for sure. gringrin

You also did well to get these as sharp as you were able. I'm looking at exif data and seeing shutter speeds ranging from 1/50 down to 1/15 sec, and at 400mm, even with image stabilization, that's a tough order. Were you handheld or did you shoot from a tripod?

The third one works best for me. Nicely balanced environmental portrait. I like the first one too. Looks like he's dropping you a wink in that one. The eye contact (no pun intended on the singular "eye") on the last one also is great.

At first, I thought he was winking at you. wink You got some nice shots here. I have to agree with Steve, the third one is tops. Everything comes together in that one. I would love to have been there with you. Thanks for sharing the photos of the poor fox.

BTW, I hate the sound of Harley's too. I would have followed him into the woods. grin

#3 is a winner for sure. Wonder how long this guy will be around with a handicap of a missing eye?

Very cool shots, nice to have such a cool visitor. I just saw one of these cross the road last night as I was driving. Cool animal.

Steve the first two shots I took while leaning on a telephone pole and the third I was laying on the ground and the rest I shot with a tripod. Dan the fox will survive a long time as long as I keep feeding him bird seed and cat food grin

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
