A photographer, who volunteers at Wildlife Aid Foundation in Leatherhead has used a fox family that has established a home in her garden as inspiration for her newest exhibit. Alannah Hawker combined her love of animals and photography as part of the art researches, but it was the fox family arrival at her home in Merstham that ignited her love for wildlife. She has researched the family the past 4 years, taking pictures of three generations and even receiving some honors for some of her snaps.
According to reports, Alannah Hawker told that the fox family’s lives have become her favorite thing to photograph easily, and it is just amazing being able to show and document their lives to the world. The foxes are really secretive animals and they are very much misunderstood. Therefore, it is great to be able to drive out that somewhat.
Miss Hawker, who is all set to arrange her 3rd exhibit at RT Gallery in Merstham from 28th November, told that he expects that her snaps would receive people an insight in United Kingdom’s wildlife population.
As a Wildlife Aid Foundation volunteer in Randalls Road in Leatherhead, Hawker has had the scope to get close with the animals she serves. The 22 year old that not just she helps animals, this has made her love for their wildlife develop even more. She has set herself in a mission to click pictures of all different species she has seen and served at the centre.

Johnny Yinger termed it as sheer dumb luck when he talked about the circumstances of his snap of a perched hummingbird sticking its tongue out. He stated that it was just a blink of an eye. One just cannot plan for that. Yinger’s snap named Hummingbird Tongue was selected as the winner of the Readers Wildlife Photography Contest 2014.
Over seventy snaps were handed for judging in 2014. The 2nd spot was handed to Poolville’s Robert F. Cook for his early morning snap of 3 coyotes – two of them standing on a bale of hay – across the path from his home. Frankfort Center’s Lynn Cleveland finished 3rd with her snap of a yellow warbler.
Tim Hensel, from Fayetteville, stated that he has got a trumpet vine in his yard that the hummingbirds totally love. Often, he stand out there and take their snaps. The professor of economics and public administration at Syracuse University added tat he could get with fifteen feet, but he had to stay very still.
Cook told that he took his snap Early Morning Coyotes from around hundred and fifty yards away with a telephoto lens. It was tough for him to get very close to the species. Coyotes are very nocturnal creatures. He rarely sees them during the day. While Cleveland’s snap, Yellow Warbler was the result of persistence and patience. It was clicked near a pond in Fairfield. Lynn Cleveland told that the yellow warbler was bugging in the scrub apple trees, the leaves were too thick to get a clear shot. It left the trees for a few minutes.
