My little fox cub photo is to mark two years on Trek Nature. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their advice and inspiration. I feel I have gained so much from my time here.

I joined with my little Kodak camera, was inspired to try a DSLR camera and this year I have upgraded my equipment so I have a kit I am really comfortable with. I can see a big difference already in my shots but I still have a lot to learn.

My knowledge of nature has also improved through the wonderful notes displayed on the photos.

Congratulations Karan, an excellent image to mark the two years with.
I think we've all learned a great deal here..
It will be 4 years for me in a couple of months..
Your photo looks technically right on the money in every respect.
I'm curious though, what is the dark object I see next to its near leg there? Something it's caught?
I found myself peering into my monitor...almost fell in ;}

Hello Karan,
This is a beautifully coloured shot with wonderfully sharp detail. Congratulation on 2 years, I would be delighted if I could reach this level of skill after two years with TN. TFS, best regards, Lee

Bonjour Karan,
Thank you for all the fine postings you have shown on TN! Years pass very quickly, too quickly.
Foxes are very photogenic, if well taken. This cub has a very attentive and curious expression, which makes the picture very special. The colours are great and the sharpness is just perfect. Excellent quality like always.
Bonne journée

Hallo Karan
What can I say about such beauty? This is a in tender moment, with excellent details, natural lightning and environment and great composition. I think this is a superb post. The cuteness factor is also very high here. The colour of the cubs fur is so beautiful and looks so fluffy. I do like the expression on its face and the staring eyes. Great sharpness and exposure. Lovely presentation to celebrate your 2nd year on Trek Nature. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hello Karan

Very beautiful!
Congratulations on 2 years.I have enjoyed your postings and many are artistic and unique and show great imagination and creativity which I admire in you very much.
I also sense your deep affinity for certain woodland creatures in your native UK,like foxes,stoats,weasels and their ilk and of course the water vole.
This is super,the focus is sharp with lovely sharpness.
The colours are natural.
I love the expression and intentness on the fox's face.
Great job.

Hi Karan,
Outstanding shot of this cute littl;e fox and CONGRATULATIONS on your completion of two years here on TN. Must be great feeling and you celebrate with a fine image. Very impressive sharpness, colours and details and I like your low POV to portray it. That eye certainly looks naughty. Very nice composition. Kudos.

* Wish to have you amongst us for many more years.
