Amnéville Zoo, France.

The Fennec is a small fox found in the Sahara Desert of North Africa (excluding the coast) which has distinctive oversized ears. Although some authorities classify this as the only species of the genus Fennecus, it is shown here in the genus Vulpes. Its name is derived from the Arabic word for "fox".

je suis très impressionné par la pose et la netteté de ta photo. Elle se marie très bien avec le beau flou de l'arrière fond et épouse toute la silhouette de l'animal. Du grand art!

Hello Mike,
All ears!!
Little cutie is well depicted, a well chosen point of view resulting in this fine composition...
Good colours and fine details in the fur coat!

Hi Mike,
These animals are just so beautiful, actually too beautiful as they are often captured and held as pets.
Very nice capture with this excellent pose. The light is very nice and creates a soft feeling. Some minor noise in the BG.
