Hi All,
Lucy and I had a visitor show up as we were looking for the Snow Geese flocks coming off of Freezeout Lake to feed in the grain fields close by. This Red fox was hunting mice most likely in this grain field but she pose for a few images before moving on.

godd free space you leaved in the framing, fine focus

and a very beautiful expression of the Fox's glance, TFS


She's a lovely girl Rick! Her coat is shiny and thick, she looks very healthy. I love the the way she's looking toward you, with her sweet little face. Colors, sharpness and lighting are all great. Keep up the great work.

Hello Rick,
A superb image of this stunning Red Fox. The fine pose shows off it's beautiful coat with exceptional detail and rich colors. Perfectly composed with excellent luminosity and just the right exposure. Super job!!!
This is one animal that is extremely elusive in my area of the country. It is a rare treat whenever I get the opportunity to view one in the wild.

Hi Rick
Wonderful shot of this lovely fox.
Colors and details are perfect!
I like it!

Hi Rick,

Very attractive wildlife photo. How often is it, when you're out on a trek, that something completely unexpected shows up? Quite often, I've found. In this case, you were ready, and could take full advantage of the situation. I love the eyes and perked up ears of the fox. The fur colours and texture are superb. Your posting looks like a page from a wildlife picture book. TFS.


Great soft pastel colors.
Subject focused, sharp, well contrasted.
Mario with regards.
P.S. Have a wonderful holiday.
