A red fox is focused on the photographer – but not quite sure what to make of him. From my visit with a couple of foxes this past weekend, I loved the early morning side-lighting on this shot.
It has really been interesting spending time with them. If I just sit and don’t move much, they don’t mind me at all. They will walk right by me, sometimes quite close like in this case that it makes me a little bit nervous.
It was walking by, stopped, stared right at me, and certainly had to realize I didn’t belong there. But, after sizing me up, decided I was no threat and calmly walked on. Staying calm, moving slowly and keeping my camera on silent shooting mode certainly has proven to be the key to quality time with them.
Have a fantastic #FoxFriday and weekend!
