Two days in the AWD.
Boy, the weather wasn’t really co-operative! The objective was Fallow Deer but they hardly showed. But my favorite animal of all, the fox, made a smashing appearance! Not only she, but her brother also. Everytime I see these beautiful animals my heart just aches. Here in Holland the general opinion is that the only good fox is a dead one. Hurray for the people at the AWD that they don’t seem to feel that way. I really think that for many people it is quite rare to see a fox up close. Certainly in the area I live I never see them! I really cherish the moments I can share with these wonderful, sly and cunning creatures.
The strange thing is that being in the neighorhood of beautiful animals like this seems to emphasize my own mood. Today I feel like I’ve lost a friend I didn’t even meet yet. Silly thoughts but somehow it does hurt.
To lighten up things: Below is what happens when you are not careful with your equipment! 🙂
This is the male fox; the brother of the female above.
