Photo of the Week

263

Ken Graham has to be the envy of all foxhunting photographers this week with these amazing shots of fox and hounds at a meet of the Potomac Hunt (MD). Click Readmore to see a slide show of the complete sequence.

This fox had two options: leave covert and make for the open or beat the lead hound to the intersection and duck back in. Appearances notwithstanding, the fox had it calibrated just right and made its escape!

Was this the hunted fox?

A good question. Maybe this fox was trying to help out a pal by switching the pack off another fox. If so, it was certainly taking a big chance on a very close encounter!

I'll try to get an answer to your question.

Photographer Ken Graham assures us it was the hunted fox.

If this is the hunted fox, why are the 2 hounds in the slide with the fox not on the line ? What are they running ?

Just looking at the photo, my guess is that the fox is being pressed from behind by hounds not in the photo. I'm guessing that the hounds in the photo are just coming out of covert, harking to all the commotion. Probably neither the fox nor the hounds in the photo were aware of each others' presence at that moment.

One for the fox. The hounds didn't see him till he was in front of them, thats when he turned on the after burners. Look at his ears perk when he succeeds
