fox cub, originally uploaded by Jo Bradford.

I spotted a huge rabbit warren in the woods and thought that with a bit of patience a stoat may turn up as there were stoat tracks on the ground all around.  So I was sitting around in the bushes with my camera (a surprisingly common activity for me), thinking about moving (I had been sitting totally still for a few hours by now), when I heard a rustling in the clearing to my side, and looked across to see this little guy watching me, I had to move my lens round painfully slowly so as not to startle him, but he obligingly waited for me to get a single shot before he got up and walked off.
