[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This female fox was at the expected place in the dunes. It's a place well known to photographers because the are so tame (being fed) they com very close. This one was at the closest within 2 meters. She was obviously a female full of milk. Sadly enough the 5 cubs she's supposed to have were absent.

Favorite food: peanutbutter sandwich

Just to make sure, I don't condone this kind of behaviour but when given the chance I will make the picture

Hallo Jeroen,
Schitterende foto in alle opzichten. Enorm scherp en prachtige kleuren. Uitstekende compositiekeuze. Een beauty!

Hi Jeroen,
This is a fantastic fox portrait. Those eyes and that fur details are excellant. Feeding a carnivore is pretty serious, it could cost the fox its life when someone gets bit, I am just saying. I would have taken the shot too who wouldn't. Great stuff.

SUPER shot!!
Excellent capture with fantastic clarity, focus and splendid colours

Jimi Hendrix cover,Jeroen!
excellent close portrait

Hi Jeroen,

A fine shot of this vixen. Excellent clarity, colour and bg. A nice catch light in the eye. She is certainly concentrating on something.
TFS regards Bill.

Hey Jeroen what a amazing image here, everything spot on except for a little over sharpening,
Thanks for sharing,


Very nice portrait of this beautiful animal!!! Thanks for sharing!!

Hallo Jeroen
A wonderful image with a wonderful story behind it. It is also not the 1st time I have heard that peanutbutter is an ideal bait to lure animals, birds or even insects closer. Your portrait of this female fox is beautiful, with lots of details to look at and enjoy. It is a pity about the youngsters, but you made up by sharing with us a great image, taken from very close by. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ciao Jeroens. Impressive sharp and focus for the fox's portrait. Beuatiful natuiral colours against the blurred BG!


This a beautiful animal and a perfect photograph. regards yiannis

Hello Jeroen
Wow! Outstanding portret of this "foxy lady", attracted by her favourite food ( I understand, not from you). Nowadays, there are coming much more closer to human stabiliments in search for food, which is quite dangerous and disturbing for them. I must recognize, I gave once a sausage to a fox in a parking place in the Ardenns.

All the best,

  • Great
