Author's notes

Just a bit on from where a group of kangaroos had been resting I saw a European Red Fox resting on a burnt, fallen down tree, appearing to soak up the morning sun. It saw me before I saw it. I was able to kneel down so as to steady myself before I took the attached shots but when I unbuckled my camera pack the fox decided to go, not flee, but in a controlled way it climbed down from the tree before disappearing behind it. I am not sure if its den was nearby.
