A sweet and pleasant creature?
Or: How do you like the diagonale, here?
Red Fox (female)
Vulpes vulpes

I dedicate this fox (Luna is the name they gave her at the Ecomuseum) to Callie's wife, Pietta.
In a critic for a previous post Callie wrote: "...that look, reminds me of myself when I want to weasel another lens out of my wife!".
This image is an example of attitude which his wife could take if he insisted too much. I hope that it will not happen ;-)

For of more information about my subject, please refer to a previous presentation.
Sorry for the BG.
Thanks for looking at her.

I love this shot very much, very clear and sharp. looks cute but I am sure those teeth could do some damage. Well taken and thanks for sharing.

Oh, I really love the diagonal(s) here Luc - as well as the lovely fox you captured. I hope Callie will succeed persuading his wife and not have to see this attitude:-).

Excellent capture with perfect dof showing so many details in the fur and these wonderful white teeth - no need for a dentist here. Wonderful colours and very good tight cropping - well done.

Wow!! Fantasic pose! Very good POV, DOF & razorsharp details. Well done! TFS

When I signed uo for this photo shoot I didn't realise it was to advertise toothpaste! Nice pearly whites. Good image Luc. TFS

Luc, A one of a kind! Like catching a sunset at just the right moment..You seem to have captured this fox at the "zenith" of its yawn.. Thanx for sharing this wonderful profile done in expert fashion!

Wow!!! Beautiful teeth! :) Great shot of this beautiful fox. Great pose, the colors and sharpness are very good. I wouldn´t like to be bitten for this great mouth. Nice note. Good job.



Douce et aimable? Probablement. Les dentistes l'aimeraient certainement: ouvrez grand la bouche...S.V.P.
Très bonne photo Luc. 'Madame Callie' l'appréciera sûrement.

A great portrait shot of this fox. Great timing of this shot to get the perfect expression. Detail and colors are perfect. Well framed. Nice Job!

Wow! Terrific shot Luc. "Oh Granma, what sharp teeth you have!" 11 out 0f 10. Perfect TFS.

Great shot Luc.
This is so nice, great quality.
Very good colours, sharpness, POV and composition.
Excellent work.

Stunning Luc. great action shot and clearly not a potential patient for a dentist. Good shot as always Luc.

Great shot Luc, have you just told it a joke.
True, everywhere you look in this shot there are diagonals. Great texture to the fur, good colours, very clear image.
Well captured!
Thanks for sharing.

Great catch and very good timining, very good details.

Superb post Luc, Wow... It could have been good to get more space in front.
Very well done.

Bonjour Luc, ta photo est tout simplement parfaite. Quelle netteté, on pourrait compter les poils de cette jolie renarde.

Ne semble-t-elle pas nous dire : "que la vie est dure ..."


Awesome shot Luc,
Perfect quality, and excellent composition
One for the favorites, without any doubt
Thanks for sharing

Super shots the details are amazing. Well done Luc.

Luc, quelle merveille de netteté et de rendu des couleurs et des détails! Je vois que tu aimes bien l'Ecomuseum. Et tu en profites pour nous faire bénéficier de tes talents. Merci pour cette superbe contribution.

This shot shows the health that this fox is in. His teeth are very clean. It shows us that the ecomuseum are feeding this poor little fellow real food instead of garbage.
Although there wasn't great difficulty in capturing the fox, what are the odds in capturing a yawn.? The image is well focused and exposed. The composition where you have plaved the foxes' head is perfect within the frame. Well done.

Great shot. Sharpness, colors and framing are very great.

Fantastic moment, great composition. Exceptional details and exposure. Great shot! Well done, Luc. My only small nit is the BG.

Le rêve d'un dentiste, une bouche grand ouverte et de belles dents saines...
Fantastique cette prise de vue absolument impec au niveau de la netteté et la prise sur le vif d'un baillement sans retenue.

Another incredible photo that shows what a Pro1 & a skilfull photographer can do. I will only say that canon should buy your shots as demos of this camera. Excellent, but specially good lights.
