Red Fox (Vulpes Vulpes)

I only had about 2 seconds to react to this one as he crossed a very narrow opening in the long grass, and had unfortunately been struggling to manually focus on a close up little bird just beforehand. This was the best I could focus in the time available.
Unlike many canids, foxes are not usually pack animals. Typically, they live in small family groups, opportunistic feeders that hunt live prey (especially rodents). Using a pouncing technique practised from an early age, they are usually able to kill their prey quickly. Foxes also gather a wide variety of other foods ranging from grasshoppers to fruit and berries.
