clever idea. I don't get wild foxes on my property. I only have my 3 as pets. I have a survillance camera in their room,
and going to put one in their enclosure. heck, my phone's battery would wear out waiting for wild foxes :lol:

did you set up those bricks? that looks like a very clever set up. if you did, please tell me how you kept them together.

thank you for the video, it was great.

Hello Pat and thank you!

I normally run out of space before the battery runs out.. I get about 33 mins of recording time.. I use up to 5 cameras at a time.. once I put food out they come within 10/15 mins normally 3.

Yes I set those bricks up, they are only plonked on top of each other they came from a collapsed wall. The wall behind you can see which has been rebuilt differently.

I change the arrangement to get differing shots... the bit with the cat was supposed to be foxes .. but they just would not use that way.

Please feel free to repost the Youtube link if you wish!

Best

That is so interesting, what a great idea you have there. what other type cameras do you use?

I would like to do something similar for my foxes. ( I like to make changes for them when I can).
it looks like something they might like. I have bricks, and some fire bricks, when I get some time,
I will see what I can put together for them.

you said you change the arrangement of the bricks, I assume they don't knock any of the bricks off?
I would feel bad if one of my foxes went inside, and a brick came loose. guess I always think the worse.

thank you again for the video. I am sure the other members will enjoy it too.

Well I am a professional photographer ... www.kevinphillips.co.uk...and use proper canon camera equipment on assignments.. but all you see on that video is using Samsung old and new mobile phones.

You might also find this amusing.. its a mix of live action and animation inspired by a pic of two mating foxes...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SY5J6q1B-fA

The bricks are heavy and well grounded they wouldnt be able to displace them.. and foxes appear to be so sure and light footed.

I love the videos. very impressive how you did the the second one. I can't even begin to image how you put that together.

I am impressed you are a processional photographer. really great work you do. that explains why the videos and pictures are so nice.

I looked at the first video again, at first I was thinking the brick pile was higher, but, now, I can see those bricks wouldn't fall.
they looked like the fire bricks?

yep, foxes are light footed. but, my raccoon is not so light on his feet :lol:

Finally someone who appreciates the hours and days it takes to make those videos!! Thank you for your kind comments.

The second one is using imagery manipulated in Photoshop and created from photographs I took, then imported and animated on a timeline basis in Final Cut Pro .. a professional video editing application...

Likewise these two others....

and my first one...

Which I cannot explain!!..

I completely understand when some people don't realize time spent on projects.
I got through the same thing, with of course different projects than what you do.

to be honest, I don't think I ever seen any videos like the ones you posted. I really applaud you for your creativity on those videos. very unique and impressive.

thank you for sharing your wonderful work.

no need to thank me. just being honest.

I am sure other members will see your videos, many of us get pretty busy, sometimes we have
a slow replies. I am guilty of that too..

also, welcome to sybil's message board, hope you stick with us and share some of your great work.

We have always had cats, Pat, although our last one died at 18 a couple of years ago. He adopted us from a couple of doors down when we lived in London. Funny thing, a month after he died a cat walked into our house one warm sunny summer morning, and just went to sleep on the floor. He then visited us daily for at least 6 hours until he moved 3/4 mile away, and now he visits us once a week. We have only ever fed him as a special treat on Xmas Day too.I really miss him when he isnt here, I have never known a cat to be so affectionate, he actually stretches up our legs to be picked up and then nuzzles into our necks, and complains when we put him down. Trouble is, as a young cat he is a hunter and I have had to take 6 different birds on 4 occasions to the local wildlife sanctuary after he has had them in his clutches.

You must have a very satisfying life with all your animals and a lot of love and affection from them all too!..It is a shame there is no video of any of them unless I have missed those links when looking over your site?

sorry to hear about the the loss of your 18 year old cat, however, that is about the average age most cats live to.
I did have a cat that lived to be over 20 years old. but, 18 is usually the average.

how unique about the stray cat showing up after the loss of your cat that died. that stray cat must really be happy visiting you. quite the dedicated cat to continue the visit after he moved a further.

some cats have different personalities. however, as we know, most of the time it depends on how the person shows their love. I always say, if you show the animal love, we get the love in return.

I currently have 6 cats, most stay outdoors, all 6 have different personalities.
