[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
along the border between Israel and Sinai desert, used to live a small population of Fennecs.
I don't know what happened to them now.
They live in a sandy area, dig in the sand and eat insects and snails. The Fennec fox is the smallest fox in the world - only 1 kg.

Beautiful picture, Eyal. The fennec against the dark entrance of this cave is very well caught, with a very natural expression. They don't seem to be timorous, so, I don't know if this was easy or not, but the result is very attractive. Cute little animal!

Love those ears! Did you catch her by surprise, or is she just smiling for the camera. Nice photo.

Small with big ears...
Nice capture, I like the background as well.

Cute one :-) I like composition with triangular fennec's head and dark hole in BG.

This is a superb, shot. The colours set off against the dark nest brings him out nicely. The nose tip seems a bit bright. But I really like this shot.

Excelente captura Eyal... agradable composicion con bellos tonos y buena agudeza.
La espectacularidad de las orejas de esta especie es realmente maravillosa.
Personalmente probaría un encuadre no tan centrado... pero es sólo un punto de vista.

Excellent capture Eyal... pleasant composition with beautiful tones and good sharpness.
The spectacularity of the ears of this species is really wonderful.
Personally I would prove a frame not so centered... but it is only a point of view.

Very cute with the big ears.
Nice composition and colours, good details.
Well done.

Wow, I never realised they were that small, I'm amazed. Excellent shot, it looks great coming from out of the darkness. Good work Eyal.

I love the V that the ears and the mouth displays. The dark entrance helps to bring the fox to the front.

Great shot

This nice, the fox and his abode. Nice detail. Well done

Wow, great picture.

Nice animal. How long have you been wainting to make this photo. What focal lenght? Fennec is superb....

Oh, this is really a cute little fox. I simply cann't stop looking at these big ears and the tongue hanging out - excellent capture.

A bit too soft this image but arent they the cutest animals of the bush, I have a few shots of them too ...

This a vry good shot, I missed when away and now I see I like it very much. A fantastic pose and prespective for this beautiful subject.

I love that litlle animal. Looks like he wants to play and such a large hole that he dug.
Nice photo.
