[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Foxes are becoming a major problem in many European cities. They have moved in very close to humans and have their lairs in railwaybanks and beside sewer canals. Here in Luxembourg they are serious carriers of rabies and therefore a threat to dogs. This one was out looking for food on a sunny morning in May in a field about 50 meters from a row of houses. This is rather unusual, as the fox is generally a nocturnal hunter. It discovered me the minute I took this, and I do find that left eye has a very foxy look,

I have try to take a few shots of a fox in the Ardennen, but he was to fast.
Very good capture here, good composition,he looks mean to me, good note too, Okee it's a little unsharp but I like the capture. very good job Per.

LOL, that expression just says it all... the image is a little too soft, but worth a small smile for the look on his face. We get a lot of foxes in our towns and cities here, to the point where I believe the town foxes outnumber the country ones.

Nice one Per a little unsharp but good enough, intresting note too, I often come across them in the day time they like to sunbath in quiet sunny corners, but usually get away before you see them.

Nice one Per, the focus is a little off, but I like the pose and the note is nice.

What happy for taken this picture, Per, maybe it's a little unsharp but the composition is very nice. Good note too. Well seen!

He is giving me the eye... ;)

This is a nice composition. The note adding value to the post. I do agree on the softness of focus, a bit soft. But all and all a nice take. Thanx for sharing.

Wow - what a mean looking fox - normally they could have a nice look - but this one special - the only fox-photo I got is of a dead fox - but the story around a little funny - so may be I post it better some day - just for the story ;-) - And yes foxes surely got very domestic the last years - I seen TV shot of a fox - waiting for the green light to walk over the road :-)

Thanks Per - I must find some photos for TL and TN soon - but then agian time :-( to follow up.
