Red Fox, Vulpes vulpes, Grünenmatt, Emmental, Switzerland
I spotted this fox during the afternoon. Missed it the first time, the second time, took the car and rushed to the nearby corn field. Got on my knees and hurried between the stems trying to avoid any noise. Got nearer and nearer. Went out of the field in the freshly mucked meadow (can you imagine how I smelled afterwards...?). Laid down and approach more and more, stopped at about 10 m, the fox as well, turned around and there was it: My very best wildlife shot! From eye to eye...
