Default Wildlife

Not exactly unusual wildlife, but memorable to me. First I happened to notice a flock of crows chowing down in the field. Then a couple of larger birds arrived:



They were soon joined by others:



Eventually most of the crows left, I guess they thought it was getting too crowded or something;



Later on, as it was getting dark, we spotted this fox by the side of the road:



The Q might have a fair amount of noise at this ISO, but you can still get useable photos with it.

Oh Wow, To catch a fox, stealing tyres, thought they mostly went for eggs

Great shots, just shows what a awesome camera the Q is and why I haven't picked up my K20 since I got my Q.

The fox was fairly tame - the owner of the tires fed it. The fox was cautiously waiting for its hand-out. It looked like a nightly occurance, the person was sitting on the porch steps and the fox cautiously moved forward, quickly took the offered food then darted away. I took 4 or 5 pictures, but most had significant camera blur - 1/20 sec. is way too slow for handholding a long lens out a car window of a moving subject. I was fortunate that the fox stood still at the same time I managed to stay still enough to get the picture.
