    Default Fox

    Dear All,
    Just returned from a delightful trip to Kakragad at the confluence of the rivers Mandankini and the Akashkamini in the Garwhal region of Uttarakhand. Primary objective was birding in and around the river pools and aTrek to Tunganath (12,140 ft AMSL) to photograph the Monal Pheasant and snow pheasant.

    Starting of with a fox which ensured I did not get any Monal pictures. Unknown to us this gent was stalking the Monals that we had spotted. Before we could reach a suitable location to set up the tripod and Anu's 500, the fox made the charge, the Monal flew past me and neither me nor the fox could get what we wanted.

    Once unsuccessful, he sleepishly strolled across the meadow, looked back once at me before embarking on another venture for a breakfast. Though he spoiled it for me, I enjoyed photographing him in his gorgeous winter coat laced with silver and black. I wish i could get the details on his white tail tip but the light was rather poor.

    EOS 50D + 500f4 IS L + 1.4x II @ 1/320, f5.6, ISO 1600.

    Look forward to comments.
    Cheers
    Dipankar
