Insect-eating fox.

27th May 2012: I took this image of a marsh fox eating insects, earlier today. I had been to the heronry and was wearing my camouflaged kit. I watched the fox for around 20 minutes as it slowly worked a small area of the north pasture. I think it was eating buttercup flowers too, which is strange: they are poisonous. The fox was feeling the heat and lay-down a few times under shady trees, panting.

  1. Nice capture.
    If it was eating poisonous flowers maybe that’s why it kept lying down – it was unwell?

  2. I was going to say the same thing about the flowers being possibly being a natural wormer.
