Behind The Lens

Location
I am an outdoors person and one day happened upon a fox den on the side of a hill in a rural area. I could see the kits outside of the den playing and was able to get a few badly lit photos of them before the mama fox came out and told them to get inside. She saw me up on the hill, I was inside the car with the window rolled down and she came right up to the car, it was just as if she was saying, "take my photo but leave my babies alone". I only had time to shoot this one photo from the window of the car and she was gone. This may seem strange but I love animals and they sense this about me and always seem to pose for me, and I believe she did just that, as have many others. All my wildlife photography are of wild animals they are not zoo animals.
Time
This was taken in mid afternoon on a bright sunny day.
Lighting
Only natural outdoors light from the sun was used here.
Equipment
No tripod, I had no time to set it up, this was hand held camera, no flash just the natural outdoors light, at this time I was using a 35 mm film camera, this was before the digital cameras came out, it was a Pratika, (I loved that Pratika it lasted a long time till DLSR's came out) so I do have a negative for this image, it was set on ISO of 100. I would have really liked to have included her paws in this photo but I was afraid if I moved forward out of the window to much it would have scared her off.
Inspiration
I am always on the lookout no matter where I am for an image that would make a good photo. Wildlife appears to me a lot. Last winter a very young bobcat visited me all winter long, a few of those images are on the Viewbug site also and those were taken with just a point and shoot as I had no DLSR at that time and film cameras were becoming obsolete. I have never had to buy a camera they always have just come to me as gifts since I was very young. Just recently I received the gift of my first Canon DLSR and am very excited about it, so excited that I shake when I pick it up. (lol)
Editing
No post processing was done, just the development of the film. I was developing my own film back then.
In my camera bag
In my bag, I now have a Canon DLSR, an extra battery, battery charger, several lenses, cleaning cloth and fluid, a small point and shoot camera, a flash, an extra SDHC memory card.
Feedback
The best advice I can give is to respect all wildlife, remember they are wild animals and unpredictable. Keep your distance. These animals are just struggling to survive, like you and I. If you really truly love animals they will sense this and be more than willing to give you a shot. They are not stupid...they know about people, their instincts tell them whether they can trust you or not. By that I mean they know whether you mean to harm them or not.
