Hi Callie, he does look dainty and in need of a good meal. The fox looks great backlit like that, the composition is spot on as ever. Very nice note too. Thanks for posting.
PS. if this is the least successful of the five I think you should post the other four! Or have you already? I'll have to look.

Great catch and very good use of the backlight that creates a natural frame for this thin fox.

Callie, I like the back-light effect and the alert pose. Composed well with good details. One of my first posts on TN was the Common Grey Fox here in Texas..though not near as nice as this one! Well done!!

Excellent shot confirms your skills in long distances. The contour created by the BG lighting is superb. I would invite him to a good chicken! Thanks for sharing.

Yes, backlight make the picture. Very sympatic animal. I like foxes - they're very smart. Great 'where is my food' pose :-)

Great shot Callie.
Very cute fox, with big ears, a nice big tail but he need someting to eat.
Great composition and good details and a great note.
Very well done.
Nice one Callie a well captured image, though I would never of mistaken it for a Fenic too long of leg and body for that. TFS

I was wondering if anyone was going to try backlighting on their subjects with a DSLR, well, I see one.!!!!!!!!!! Excelent capture, a beauty. Well done on this composition.

Precision shot in a perfect pose. Superb at such a distance, The sunlight is with you to give this beautiful and strange dog a kind of supernatural look. Really looks sly here.
Well done, Callie.

Nice shot Callie,
Great pose, details, colour and clarity.
Like everyone else, I think the backlight adds that bit extra to another great shot.
Thanks for posting

Hij lijkt me erg slim. Uitstekende foto, ik heb het ook wel eens geprobeerd, nou dat ging dus presies hetzelfde als bij the kingfisher. fun. erg goede foto goed werk

Prachtige foto! Bijna tegenlicht. Mooie met het licht er achter door de staart en op de poten.
Ik ben echt jalours!

Your note gives me the taste to go to Kalahari only to live such a magic moment, Callie. If I was not so poor and so old (???) I would leave tomorrow morning.
The aura of light around the fox and specially through the tail is simply magnificent.
A perfect work of photographer and writer, my friend.
The enjoyment to take such photos has its equivalent only in the enjoyment to share them with people who have no leisure to live such moments, I believe.
WOW! Callie, I love the backlight on this one. Are all their tails this long. I have never seen this critter in the wild. Exceptional capture, well done.

The fantastic light faling on this, indeed "elegant" beauty is very nice.
Also the pose of the Cape Fox, a nice tiny animal
