Down at the Pond

The thrushes are doing well this year (so many slugs and snails for them). This young one was perching on one of the churchyard headstones. One day I'll put together a series of churchyard wildlife.
When I said it was quiet, I meant it. I was there again at lunchtime, and apart from a few swallows overhead, the only shot worth keeping was this one of a herring gull.
Back in the garden the badgers and foxes continue to enjoy the garden through the night. This clip is a pair of the young foxes doing their best to enter the Olympic spirit by attempting 'Synchronized Peanut Eating'.
And from this evening, a portrait of Shy Boy, who has proved to be anything but a shy fox.
Camera note: all daytime shots taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens.Shy Boy the fox was photographed with the EF 100mm f/2.8L macro IS USM lens. Video from the Bushnell Trophy Cam.
