Photo Of The Day By Richard Verroen

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “And Jump” by Richard Verroen.
“The day before I had discovered tracks of a fox in the snow when I was photographing in National Park de BiesBosch, the Netherlands,” said Verroen. “I learned the different tracks from a Dutch forester in Zwitserland (it’s a small world) when I was taking pictures of the fall. These fox tracks made me go back the next day to try and find the fox, and finally I did. I managed to sneak close enough in the cold snow and it could not smell me. I lay there for almost half an hour in the freezing cold and studied his hunting tactics. Beautiful, as he sat down near a mouse hole and waited. Then when the mouse looked out, he took a big jump and one out of every four jumps it got its mouse. And then it sniffed and shook its head to get the snow off. A most beautiful sight.”
Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including Assignments, Your Favorite Places and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage, Facebook and Twitter. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
