Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo not too far from the vixen den, hiding inside avocado grove not too far from where I used to live, trying not to get too close and disturb their daily life.
Time
The photo was taken just a minute after the sun had set, as foxes are usually more active around dusk and dawn. I was lucky enough to have the last lingering day-lights to get a workable shot.
Lighting
I think that the mellow soft light of dusk helped me to better capture the different layers of the vegetation, as well as the fox, with minimum shadows.
Equipment
Canon 6D with Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM lens, hand held and natural lighting.
Inspiration
This vixen was following me for a while, as I accidentally was walking not too far from her den. every few steps I saw her picking from behind a tree or a bush, making sure I am getting away. She become more comfortable when she felt I'm no threat, and only at a very safe distance for the den, I stopped to take a few shots, her on-the-watch looks was too perfect to pass on, and together with her hiding, created a nice natural-looking voyeur framing.
Editing
I only made basic Lightroom colour correction ,cropping and sharpening. I try not to over-process, for I have a soft-spot for dirty, natural looking wildlife photography. But of course it will be plain stubbornness not to use the tools that are available for use at the moment.
In my camera bag
Canon 6D that 90% of the time attached to a Canon EF 500mm f/4L USM IS ii, tripod, and 50mm/28mm lenses for the odd occasion.
Feedback
Be outside, and very cautiously track animal, always prefer use patience and give wild animals their space. It's better to give up on a few photos instead of trying to force them. With time a determination, the right circumstances will come together, and only a relaxed animal will give the right photos. Respect for wildlife is better for the subjects and produce better photos.
