Artic Fox: a cute animal III

As you can notice it, it is the fourth time that I post a picture of this charming animal. Probably not the last time.
This photo, which dates of two days ago, was taken at Ecomuseum through the wire netting of his enclosure. Every time, it is the same scenario:
At first he 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 grating.
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 pictures.
This time, I was rather fortunate, there was nobody with us (the fox and I). I was able to try various settings. It was particularly warm this day and Sir was in the shadow of trees.
I thus used the flash.
I apologize for the missing end of paw to the left. Maybe next time I will catch him better.
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.
Good weekend.

Very good picture, Luc.
I looks very calm. I like the light and the pose.
Good POV and composition. Nice colours and good details.
Great work, my friend.

Very soon will the "white thing" from above be here,
and it will be cold too;-(( and the daylight will be very short. I think I will follow your Monarchs south.

Have a nice weekend

Wow, Luc. This is a winner. Sir Arctic Fox is very handsome in his summer suit. I really like your mammal pictures from the EcoMuseum, and this one is no exception. The look in his eyes is amazing, and the pose is wonderful, missing paw notwithstanding. Un cliché très bien réussi. Merci pour le partage. : )

Hi Luc, MF!

I remember your previous posts with this cute fox. This one looks very relaxing, his pose is very nice, same as eyes. I like colours and light - looks like very calm moment. Great work!

Hello Luc!
Very nice capture.Lighting is amazing.Details,sharpness,POV and composition are wonderful.TFS...:-)

Hi Luc, I like your Sir. So in winter he will be completely white? He is settled down there so content and trusting of you there, that is so good to see. You can see by his eyes that he is aware of you, but is happy for you to take these photos. Beautiful fox, just a pity about his smell!
I looked up Ecomuseum on the Internet - looks like a great place ot visit. I look forward to more photos of your visit there.
Have a good weekend... :)

Hi Luc,
I love the pose as he is laying on the log. They are cute, and beautiful animals. A good job under the conditions you have described.
He appears to be very relaxed in your presence.

This is quick Luc, I have to catch a flight out. Well deserved :-)
Makes you want to sit down and stay awhile though ;-))

Excellent capture. Great composition and nice sharp detail. Very good colors, great POV and very sharp. Great informative note. Very well done. Have a great weekend.

Great shot Luc,
Very busy few days for me, so I'm afraid a short visit!!
No time to read notes, but enough time to enjoy your post.Well worth a big green smile.
Thanks for posting, have a good weekend
