Foxing Around

Ive spent a fair bit of time lately trying to get decent snaps of the local Foxes in the area, and was rewarded on a few occasions with this individual which took to sleeping in the same area of fallen leaves for a couple of hours; at always the same time each night. After a few visits it became very very approachable and I managed to get decent (amateur) shots on three occasions, if it was a dry night it would always be reliably in the same area, until Glendale decided to blow all of the fallen leaves away and collect them in.....hence, since this happened I haven't seen it again! Why on earth the parks department deems it important to remove leaves from wooded sections of parkland is anyones guess! But I did feel rather privileged to have had the opportunity to get so close to a wild animal without disturbing it.
