Canon 200-500mm F2.8 APO EX DG Lens 170- 500 Sigma 6.3 1600

I was walking thru the salt marsh @ ISLBSP in NJ to fish the flats for stripers. I saw out of the corner of my eye a flash of orange. The fox darted away then came back for a closer look at me in my flyfishing gear. I dropped my gear and ripped off a few shots with my Canon 70 D and sigma 170-500 ( you can't even buy that lens anywhere but it is still a very fast lens) I tried to include my lens in your request but the only lens close that came is the 200-500 ...BUT I USEDED 170-500 the photo is NOT cropped or touched up in anyway thank you Nancy

Always had a passion for photography. My dad got me started without intention. Ever since I got my first DSLR, I have always loved to take pictures of anything.
