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.’
