Renard gris

La seule présence au Québec (L'ile Anticostie)

Le Renard gris a une taille et un régime alimentaire semblables au Renard roux, mais il est plus mince, a des oreilles légèrement arrondies, une ligne noire sur le dos et des flancs gris tachetés. Il est blanchâtre en dessous et son cou, le derrière de ses oreilles et ses pattes sont jaune chamois. On le rencontre dans l'extrême Sud du Manitoba, de l'Ontario et du Québec.

Il affectionne les milieux boisés ou accidentés et vit dans des bûches creuses ou sous des surplombs. Il n'est pas strictement nocturne. Il grimpe souvent aux arbres et aime prendre des bains de soleil. L'accouplement a lieu en février ou en mars, et la portée, qui contient en moyenne 4 petits (de 1 à 7), naît environ 63 jours plus tard. Les petits deviennent indépendants à l'automne et se reproduisent la saison suivante.

Hola Jose.
Esta zorra color gris parece estar muy atenta a una posible presa. La claidad de la foto es exelente, y por lo que se aprecian sus atributos. El color de sus ojos es muy bello tambien.
Saludos Jose.

Hi Joseph,

Great close-up portrait of the fox.
Wonderful concentrated look in the eye.
Superb sharpnessand fur detail.
Very beautiful how the darker fur of the fox does stand out against the yellow and green color tones of the grassess in the BG.
Perfect work. TFS!!!

Best regards, Harry

amazing sharp face, TFS Ori

Well that is certainly sharp. I know several people with that lens and it is a good one! I'm a little surprised that the depth of field is so shallow you weren't even at full extension.

Hi Joseph,

I was just about to knock off when I spotted this fabulous shot of the Grey Fox, superb composition with a great POV and a fine pose of the Fox in total concentration, I really like the expression on its face, the detail in the fur is excellent, nice light in the eye and great colours, the subject is also nicely isolated from the OOF BG.

Splendida immagine, ottimi POV e DOF, bellissima composizione di grande intensità, eccellenti i dettagli e molto belli i colori e lo sfondo. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

salut Joseph

superbe portrait du Renard Gris, excellent POV et cadrage,
j'aime sa pose qui est probablement à l'arrêt à vue
sur une proie, j'aimes beaucoup la belle luminosité de l'image
et surtout la belle densité dans les couleurs du renard,
joli oeil, excellente netteté et détails de son fourrure, TFS
