11th July 2012: With the vegetation being so high the most common animal to be seen on the marsh is a rabbit. Where there are rabbits, there are foxes, and I saw a fox at North Pond this evening.
If it wasn’t for swans, ducks, coots, insects and wild flowers, I wouldn’t see anything to photograph. There are landscapes, of course, but don’t find landscapes much fun.
If I keep my camera to my eye, I can walk really close to rabbits; they only run when they see my eyes. The same applies to foxes; as long as they can’t see my eyes, I am invisible to them. I have to be careful, though, that I don’t step into a rabbit hole or fall into brambles or stinging nettles.
