Ed at Ridersite - Red Fox: Show Your Favorite Image Captured With Your 70-400mm G / G2

Ed, thanks for joining the fun.  All your images as usual are beautiful but that Red Fox blows my mind.  I want so much to find a Red Fox in the wild.

One thing I notice about all your images is the relatively slow shutter speed (at least slower than some have recommended).  You might expect some questions about your selection of shutter speed and technique (I can see it sure works for you).  Even the humming bird at 1/400 sec (I think you may have explained to me that the humming bird hovers - thus can capture with slower shutter).  Also all other birds are static so slow shutter would work (except need to hold lens steady).

Thanks for sharing.
