Re: **Weekly Wildlife Thread Oct 27** - A Fox Hunting Deer

Last night at 8:15 PM while having dinner, I turned on the back yard flood lights, and was stunned at what they revealed. A fox was circling a deer while it sized up the opportunity for a possible dinner of Bambi steak.

My A77 was close, but given the low lighting and lack of time to set up a tripod, I was forced to shoot handheld, at 1/4 second exposure and ISO 3200 to get the shot while they were still there. Given the slow shutter while being handheld, the picture is obviously fuzzy - but it did capture the encounter!

The fox finally decided that he was a bit too small to take on the doe, and wandered off.
