Behind The Lens

The image was shot in a very small hide tucked away in a friends back garden.
The shot was taken at around 13:30.
Despite freezing conditions the light from the afternoon sun was rather pleasant.
Canon 5D Mk2 with a Tamron 70 - 300mm (Hand held)
I basically got an invite from a friend who lives in the New Forest who (at the time) was getting frequent visits to his garden of the little Vixen in question. It was an offer that I could simply not refuse.
Apart from a little saturation and clarity added to the piece this image is more or less straight off the camera.
In my camera bag
