    excellent shot – I love the sense of ‘focus’ in the animal, it looks positively transfixed by what’s caught its attention

  • Thanks so much! AMR

    Wonderful. He trusted you, lucky you.

  • Nice you picked up on that trust; as long as I moved slowly and didn’t get much closer, he would relax. Thanks for “seeing into” the image.

    Stunning fox!!!

  • Hi Mariann, Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my wildlife photos; you and I share a deep love of wildlife photography! I really enjoyed reading your fox story on your blog. That moment when a wild creature is more curious than afraid is truly magic!! p.s. I’m taking an online course in microstock photography (through PPSOP.com) right now, and had fun looking through your stock images too.
