Super capture, I don't suppose you had much time for more than a grab shot, so congrats on quick hands and eyes
LBA is good for you, a Lens a day helps you work, rest and play.

Not bad but If I were to be critical I would suggest that your composition could do with a bit of work. The image would have worked much better if you had managed to capture the bottom of the bag and all the straps. The random animal in the background is very distracting (mainly because it's eyes are shut) and your DoF means that the top handle, of the bag, is a bit soft.

However it was a good attempt at capturing a camera bag in an awkward situation and with a bit of perseverance I'm sure your technique will improve.

Nice shot

Nice shot! The curious fox caught on lens.
Speed and angle as well as timing create nice shots.

Great capture, Neil.

Foxes just can't help themselves. The smell of food will get their attention but almost anything new appears to attract them. It isn't unusual for us to find gardening gloves and hand tools that have been carried down the garden.

Hope the fox did not decide your sack was a good place to leave its scent.

I saw a fox at the end of my driveway last night, as I open to the door to take the rubbish out. It saw me and trundled off. Wish I had my camera with me as it looked great under the LED streetlights
