[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Don't you agree? There are cat people and there are dog people and this animal might be the solution. A dog for cat people, a cat for dog people?
This red fox frequented the roadsides of Island Beach State Park in southern New Jersey, obviously looking for ahandout. Tame as it seems, this creature was master of avoiding the camera, until this picture was taken.

Hello Claus,
A super shot of this pretty Red Fox, showing excellent detail and captured in a great pose. From the dark coloration on it's hind quarters it reminds me somewhat of a Crossfox. Nicely composed with beautiful colors and just the right exposure. Great job!!

nice fluffy one, dash Ori

Dear Claus,
A beautiful portrait of a beautiful animal.

To think that in my youth they were favorites for providing muffs and shawls for fashionable Ladies in Winter!!

It appears to me - that due to the filthy habit of people to throw food leftovers out of the car - this animal has become dependant on humans...

The same happens here in South Africa - and very often ends with the death of the animals - when they become aggressive and attack children who eat as they walk along.

I like very much the way you present your work: clean straight forward photography.

An extra bonus are the natural colours!

Enjoy the rest of your day
Greetings from South Africa
