Red Fox visits the orchard
I have been digging further into my archives for various projects and look who popped up!
I was photographing the extensive and overgrown grounds of the Langney Priory when I ventured into the orchard to find this beautiful fox standing there staring at me. She continued to do so, unblinking and completely still, for several minutes. I was a bit unnerved so I didn’t go further into the orchard and instead went to photograph the walled garden. I returned 5 minutes later and there she was again, stock still, looking at me.
She appeared so perfect and well, foxlike, that I had the strange feeling she was one of those hyper-realistic computer generated images you see in children’s films. Then suddenly, silently, she was gone and I didn’t see her again. The grounds around the Priory have now been cleared and I am hoping she still has her den somewhere safe in the undergrowth.
