[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A very rare animale most of never saw in reality, a one time deal for me as well, the small swift fox (Vulpex velox) the shape of a European fox with the temper and dynamism of the frican fenec.
Spoted at a rehab center for wildlife in Colorado, she had no tail and ribs broken as after being attacked by dogs or coyotes.

Nice portrait Radu. It looks like the animal is very contented despite its injuries.
Good post

Well spotted Radu.She looks pretty wild,and much lighter in colour than English foxes.
A good portrait...well done.

A nicely composed shot of a beautiful creature. It's a shame that the focus isn't a little sharper around the eyes.

Another picture with very soft light and colours - you do it very well, Radu. Fox looks great.

A fantastic picture! i like the light and color, expressive photo, focus & frame are perfect,
You did a great one Radu,

What a lovely specimen you captured, Radu. It's a beautifull animal and one I have not seen before. Lovely colours and those eyes are captivating. I would love to see a closer mugshot of this critter. She has the features for it. :) Great shot.

What beautiful colours and light you caught here. And the specimen is very handsome :)
I think it is a baeutiful photo, I would have liked to see larger take advantage of the 800 pixels offered by TN. Thanks.

This is a great view into the red eyes of this fox. Like most of your shots, you have excellent composition. On a constructive note, most of your images could be a little sharper and I imagine this is because you are moving quickly with your camera to get such great shots. A faster shutter speed would be worth a try because I really like your subjects.

Man o man, did I miss a lot of nice shots while away. Radu.
Yu posted some real winners.
Love the red here, the mood, the subtle texture, and the just going soft on the edges, it gives him a halo, that he, as a master thief, does not deserve, but kudus to you!
Points gone.

Perfect pose of this lady!
She's very beautiful and aristocratic:) TFS

Poor little fox; I'm so glad she survived. This is a wonderful portrait of her...the lighting on her face is superb!

Beautiful picture. The light draws out her coloring and the background is also perfect for the shot. Unlike the odd comment, I find that you have captured her and her eyes wonderfully. I can easily see the tips of her hairs as well as deep into her eyes. Thanks for sharing.
