Red Fox

Vulpes vulpes

Description:

"Big Red" as he is known, gets quite comfortable with those he trusts. After many months of observing, this day, represented by this photograph, turned out to be simply amazing. After an hour or so of hunting, Big Red decided to follow me out of the park. I decided to sit... he apparently agreed with my idea and plopped himself down besides me for a quick nap. One of the greatest days of my life.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments. I have to say that of all the foxes I photographed this guy will always be my favorite... sometimes there is just a connection.
