The Living Forest (135) : Red Fox

While I was sitting on Christmas morning in a bird-watching hut, this Red Fox suddenly turned up right in front of the shelter and stood there for half a minute, probably completely starved by the cold frost.

Fortunately I had my camera loaded with a 800mm lens and could take a few shots of this striking animal.

It was a wonderful Christmas gift for me from nature.

Dutch name : Rode Vos
German name : Rotfuchs
Latin name : Vulpes vulpes

Location : Nature reserve ‘Walenhoek’ at Niel (Belgium)

A big thanks to BRYAN CRUTE for the kindly nomination of this picture.

    It's just an amazing picture! The sharpness is perfect and the colors are very artless. The image section is also very nice. It's definitely one of the best fox pictures I've ever seen - Very well done!
    Best regards, Joas

    Beautiful portrait of this fox and a fantastic exposure against the white snow. I agree, it does seem like a gift from nature when you experience such a moment.

    oh wow!! these two "fox shots" of yours are truly amazing!! what a beautiful and fascinating creature and what perfect captures! they both deserve their little stars, even though i prefer this horizontal shot here, as in the vertical shot the fox looks almost stuffed, as though you are not only a great nature photographer but also a flawless taxidermist ; ))… greetings and congratulations on the gallery spots! sabine.
