This beau­ti­ful and strik­ing im­age of a young vixen was up­loaded to our Twit­ter page us­ing the hash­tag #ap­pi­cofthe­week. It was taken by pho­tog­ra­pher Si­mon Tas­sell. He tells us, ‘ Wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy is an ad­dic­tion and when the op­por­tu­nity arose to pho­to­graph wild foxes in South Es­sex cour­tesy of David Black­well, I jumped at the chance. I re­ally wanted to cap­ture an im­age that con­veyed the true char­ac­ter of th­ese won­der­ful mam­mals. While sit­ting in a hide.

I was able to take this im­age from quite a low per­spec­tive as this young vixen ran to­wards me. The time spent with the foxes was a unique ex­pe­ri­ence and one I hope to en­joy again.’
