One last pic from our visit to the Riveride Animal Centre found by the banks of the River Wandle as it flows through the centre of Beddington Park. The centre opened it's doors on September 6th for an open day and it was very well attended. There were a couple of runs for foxes and they had a number of fox cubs in both and the cubs are close to being old enough to be released back to the wild very soon. While most of the foxes were up and about taking in what was going on and a few ( as seen in a previous shot here on POE ) were completely chilled out and taking a doze, this character did not seem to be keen on the "people" nosing through the wire mesh into his territory. He just seemed to sit and keep a watchful eye on all us lot and stayed behind a barrel in a corner all the time with just his head showing. I have vignetted the corners just to tone down the harshness of the breeze block walls behind this chap. More pictures of Wallington by Vince Hawthorn...

Nice shot of the fox Vince, although I can see why you used the vignette effect to tone down the intrusive appearance of the breeze blocks. The only other way round it would have been to have used a very wide aperture setting (not sure what you were set to, since the EXIF information isn't showing)
