Hi Everyone,
This March when Lucy and I were at Freeze Out Lake, near Choteau Montana to watch the snow geese migration, we decided to take a drive to see what else we could find. Thats when we found this Red Fox in a farmers field try to find a meal. It was a cool bright day, I hope you like this close up, he had approach us but here decided he could smell our dogs and turn and ran just after this shot.

Hello Rick,
A superb close-up of this beautiful Red Fox. We have plenty of them here in Ohio, but they are seldom seen, because they are so elusive. You can go out after a fresh snow and find their tracks just about anywhere, but you will rarely see the fox that made them.
Excellent detail and gorgeous colors. Great job!!

wonderful eyes, a great portrait of this beautiful animal!

A fine portrait in warm colours Rick, the attention given to you by that fox is quite obvious in this study. Good work MF.

Hello Rick!
Amnazing contrast and sharpness. Fine lightness and brightness. Ideal colours.
Well done!

Hello my friend,
I'm happy to be your neighbour, especially with this fantastic post of a red fox. I love these animals. Yours has fantastic eyes, so well captured. I can see it was a bright and lucky day for you. Hope you will have interesting natural meetings this winter too. Warm regards to you and Lucy,

Hello Rick,
Wonderful portret captured in warm light with fine details, lovely colours and great eye contact. Well done!

Hi Rick,

How could you get so close to a fox??? This is a beautiful close-up showing off his wonderful eye, and fur and even his whiskers. He really looks very sweet and huggable but I wouldn't trust him with my chihuahua.

Hello rick,
very close and real close indeed.
Very well defined fur and excellent sharpness shown here.
Everything is so exciting, the whiskers and the eyes with light shining on it.

Hello Rick,
A lovely close-up of a Red Fox with great focus on the eyes that are watching you intently. I haven't seen a fox now for a few years here, they are very shy!
TFS and best wishes, uLLA

Hi Rick,
Very nice capture. I love the great colors of this fox and those eyes, those big beutiful eyes. I see a few around but they are very shy and few and far between, I like it.

Bonjour Rick,
Très beau portrait avec un remarquable regard du sujet sous une très belle lumière.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
