Artic Fox: A Cute Animal V

This photo, which dates of last October, was taken at Ecomuseum through the wire netting of an enclosure. Every time, it is the same scenario: at first the fox walks up and down, then he becomes used bit by bit to my presence. It is practically impossible to photograph him while he is in movement because of the metal netting. I thus have to wait that Sir lay down as on the photo. If I do not make abrupt movements he can stay so for a long time, the time of some photos. This time, I was rather fortunate, there was nobody with us (the fox and I). I was able to try various settings.
I like this charming animal.
Did not say to him this, he does not smell good, my human being's nose is not used to its smell. The red fox has a similar smell too.

Thanks for looking. A large mercy also to all those who help me to improve my work, most of the time without suspecting it. We progress because of the generosity of the active an even inactive members of TN and by our thirst for perfection.
Have a good week!
