On a visit to Lake Futalefu we were driving casually along a country road when this beautiful fox appeared - looking very healthy - this fine specimen of a creature with his lovely tail of soft fur stayed around long enough for me to take his picture.

this fox is ideantic to the one I saw in Torres del Paine (Chile).
instead of being scared of you the fox remained staedy and posed like a model for you
PS: I had a glance at your profile: you're from oz..but your family name sounds so euskadi (badque)

You've captured this fox wonderfully. Beautiful colors and lighting with great detail to subject matter. Just a side note, I once had a fox try to get in my car when I was still in it while I had stopped to check him out. Kind of freaky to have one of this beautiful animals lose it's natural instinct to avoid humans.
Have a great night Dawn.

A cute little fox looking straight into your lens. I like the colors and pov. He looks to be very calm and friendly.

Great photo and great Down! Bravissima! But, please, fox... run again in the forest! Are you silly? Maybe a bad man can make with your fur a coat! Run away, fox, run!

Wow! It is indeed a beautiful specimen! I've been trying to photograph a cayote but no such luck. Awesome expression on the fox face. Nicely captured with good details and wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.

He is a beautiful example of his species, and its so pleasant to see him in his natural environemnt. Normally, when I see foxes, they are running across busy roads or going through bins to find food :)

You had a chance to take this fox by a camera, Dawn - that's not just a matter of good photography - rather you were in the right place on the right time: not common for a wild animal to pose for a photo like a common family dog...
He looks vicious. Well collected hid fur in variable colors.
Enjoy a nice winter-weekend,

Lucky and beautiful capture indeed ! What a magnificent beast ! Doesn't seem to be scared ! Looks quite friendly actually. And what a lovely, bushy tail.
Great management of colours and sharpness against the blurred background.
