"Lady in Red". Callie so called her in a previous word which he sent me. He also wrote: "She has a lovely twinkle in her eye, and she also has her own fur coat..." and "did you asked her for the dance?"
No, I did not asked her for a dance but I asked her to pose for me and she took this pose.
It is the eighth photo of her that I post and it will not probably be the last one. I think that I begin to love her. A sort of love without expectation of return, hopeless of return. (I am wrong here. With the photos I have a return.)
I wish that I troubles you not too much with these photos and these comments but I only hope you like her as much as I like her.
Callie is completely right to say that we indeed have to know our subjects to photograph them well. We have to dedicate them many of our time so that several times the luck smiles to us.
Several times too I feel as a predator who observes patiently his preys and waits the good moment to capture them. It is the animal in me which redoes surface. I become an images' hunter...

Taken at the Ecomuseum, a place where I went so often during the last year by always testing as much joy.

Thank you for looking Luna looking at you.

That is a stunning close-up, Luc. The details are crystal clear and the colors are magnificent. I love his eyes.... and those long black whiskers. Magnificent POV. Congratulations and TFS. : )

She is lovely and the whole photo looks great.
I love the POV and framing, superb details and colours too.

Yes, your pretty lady in red, she's beautiful Luc. I'm sure she must know you now quite well. She is not wary of looking at you so openly and calmly. You show her off so well, her fur is so real, and I feel I could reach out and touch her. Wonderful, and thank you...

Foxy lookin lady, beautiful red pelage illuminated nicely, plus a nice POV and composition. Well done Luc. :)

zabieram do ulubionych!! pienke swiatło i super zlapany moment!!!!!

amzing shot...almost...surreal
the sharpness is exceptional and the eyes are full of what a fox means to me...wisdom and cunning in a mixture which is satisfyingly acceptable.

Hola Luc,

What a magnific portrait for a red fox. Composition, colors, details, POV... all are excellent.

Thank you very much. Regards,


Hello Luc, I love your fox pictures. I think, I know this beautiful lady. As usual a brilliant shot. Excellent sharpness, colours/lighting and POV. I think your digi is a very good camera. And the man behind the camera has a fantastic look to picture animals. Thanks for this lovely portrait Luc.

Luc my Friend
She is a foxy one, love this face, can kiss her right on that shiny nose. She looks as if she stepped from the stage, a real glamour girl.
I wish you the best for 2006. May your dreams come true - one of mine will - I'll be a Grandfather this year, a real old guy now!
I appologise for not "visiting" so many things, so little time. I will post later - i have some new toys, and I am very happy.
Thanks for posting this vixen for me

Beautiful composition, the bright colours are fantastic, great photo, excellent work!
and many thanks for sharing!

Hi... A very good shot... The eyes on the fox are very intense...

Good Work...

I'm surprised you got such a sharp shot. My kit gives me soft shots of foxes. I think they confuse my AF a bit. Did you do sharpen afterwords ?... Great zoom job, POV. Thanks for sharing !
