WOW.....now that is a b"""%^ great shot of old reynard..great colouration, excellent DoF and all round very nice image...class!! TFS..

Hallo Clint
Great portrait of this beautiful red fox. I can just repeat your own words in your note. "No need for a description of this beauty, hope you like it". Yes, indeed I do like it. The eyes are captivating and fascinating. I love this close up. I wonder what is going through his mind because it seems as if he is scrutinizing you as much as you were watching him. Great clarity, nice point of view and the composition is great because of all the visible and clear details. His whiskers are really an eye-catcher, and it feels as if I can reach out and touch his fur. A delightful image. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards


Excellent. Clean, sharp, excellent DOF, excellent POV, great colors ... and very nice pose. Simply perfect.

Hello Clint,
Excellent portrait of a Red Fox!
good close up with sharpness, beautiful colouration and details
a very pleasing and pleasant composition
many thanks

wonderful capture.great sharpness and detail.very nice pov.

Sometimes your images take the breath away. I, for one, would like more notes.... like where was this taken? How close were you? What time of day? What was your focal length? What post processing did you do? It is stunning.

A nice presentation although a lot of noise and some haloing fairly evident (around the ears) where the background has been manipulated. It would be nice to see a natural background in your images once in a while and as Evelynn points out a note would be of use to people here too.

Bonjour Clint
Superbe prise, belle netteté, lumière et couleurs, très belle attitude du sujet, seul le bruit un un poil trop présent.
Amicalement Robi
