fox feeding

feeding fox

A British birdwatcher was stunned when a friendly fox gobbled up his picnic right out of his hands. Richard Harris, 51, was sitting in one of his favourite parks enjoying a light lunch when the bushytailed creature ambled up. To his surprise, the young female happily tucked into some crisps he held out with his fingers. Retired Mr Harris said: "She came up and very carefully took my onion rings from me. I was amazed. "This carried on until we had finished the entire packet, and she didn't catch my fingers in her teeth once. "I really didn't think the fox would eat straight out of my hands without any hesitation. "It's a special moment I will remember for a long time".

quivertrees breuer

In front of a famous background of stars and galaxies lies some of Earth's more unusual trees. Known as quiver trees, they are actually succulent aloe plants that can grow to tree-like proportions. The quiver tree name is derived from the historical usefulness of their hollowed branches as dart holders. Occurring primarily in southern Africa, the trees pictured in the above 16-exposure composite are in Quiver Tree Forest located in southern Namibia. Some of the tallest quiver trees in the park are estimated to be about 300 years old. Behind the trees is light from the small town of Keetmanshoop, Namibia. Far in the distance, arching across the background, is the majestic central band of our Milky Way Galaxy. Even further in the distance, visible on the image left, are the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, smaller satellite galaxies of the Milky Way that are prominent in the skies of Earth's southern hemisphere, Photo By Florian Breuer

rare nacreous rainbow clouds photographed above

Nacreous cloud, An amateur astronomer has captured these rare mother-of-pearl coloured clouds over Scotland. The stunning pink formations, known as nacreous clouds, shimmer with the pale pink colours you would find in a seashell. They are caused by extreme weather conditions and very rarely seen in Britain. Graeme Whipps, 49, was stunned when he saw the pearlescent clouds in Chapel of Garioch, near Aberdeen in Northern Scotland. He says: "I have observed hundreds of aurora above Scotland, but this is the first time in 25 years I've seen these beautiful pearlescent clouds.

santa broke down

Visitors to Highcross Leicester shopping centre had the surprise of their lives yesterday morning as they came across Santa’s sleigh, which had broken down in the centre’s public square. Luckily the RAC were on hand within minutes - along with a number of Christmas shoppers at the east midlands’ premier retail and leisure destination - to help get Santa and his sleigh back on track, ensuring he can make his forthcoming deliveries in time for Christmas. Asked if Santa had taken the opportunity to pick up a few extra gifts during his stop at Highcross, marketing manager Gurvinder Rupra, said: “Santa’s sleigh was looking pretty full so it looks like he may have managed to get some Christmas shopping done whilst he was here. We’ll have to check our CCTV to see what presents he bought!” RAC patrolman, Roy Wilson, said; “Christmas is always a busy time for us, but this is the first time we’ve been called out to fix a broken-down sleigh. Fortunately, like most of our members, we were able to get this important gentleman on his way again, which is good news as he mentioned he has a lot of miles to cover on Christmas Eve. “He promised he would get his sleigh fully prepared for Winter to make sure he doesn’t get caught out again.”
