[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
This is a portrait of a red fox in winter, when the fur is abundant and with a lesser red hue. When I started with photography it was extremely difficult to take a portrait of a wild fox in Spain, but now some of them in places where week-end tourist have a heavy transit use to approach the people carefully and studying each movement awaiting some food as a reward for its courage. This was one of these spanish "XXI-century-fox"... (Is there some 20th-Century-Fox manager trying to change the name of the company??? I sell a cheap logotype!)

Canon 30D-100-400 ISO800 f5.6 1/30 (it was very late)

What an animal - I like your front on capture - he is looking at you so carefully and we can see all his colours and details so well
BRAVO Carlos!

Hallo Carlos
An absolute stunner! A very beautiful animal. The details of this photo are of high excellence and really exceptional. You can tap yourself on the shoulder, smile broadly and push out your chest out of pride for this portrait. I am sure there will be a few photographers that will envy you, and I for sure am one. That intense stare, the big brown eyes and beautiful ears does it for me. Congratulations. Thanks for sharing. It was lovely to look at.
Kind regards

Hi Carlos
Very nice portrait. Good sharpness, great eye contact.
I have little doubts about tight crop but it is a matter of individual taste.
Best wishes
