  1. He is so beautiful!! But, he looks like he was getting ready to run if you got any closer. 🙂

      I love foxes. I used to see them all the time when I lived in Colorado. I think I saw one in London when I took my dog out early one morning. And you are right, this little guy bolted right after this photo.

    Ohhh rad! Aren’t they very shy? Are you using a serious zoom or did he let you get that close? (She?)

    It’s great you got this shot. They are usually quite elusive.

      I know. I tried to get a photo of a fox in London, but it was really early in the morning and I wasn’t completely awake so all I got was a blurry mess.

    He looks fluffier than our London foxes.

    I love foxes… I always feel they are much more cat like than dog like…

    How cute! My daughter would love to see a fox in real life.

    • TBM says:

      I’ve seen quite a few in Colorado and I think I saw one in London. They don’t stick around long so you have to be looking for them. I hope she sees one!

  9. What a perfect looking fox. You have such a good eye for shots.

    • TBM says:

      This was pure luck. I was waking up at my friends house as this fox was wandering through the yard. It paused long enough for me to snap this shot. Fortunately I had my camera on the table ready.

  10. He seems to be looking straight at you. I love the golden fur.

  11. Kristina says:

    Look at that beauty!!! It’s so clean, not like foxes in London 😀

  12. IsobelandCat says:

    I have tons of fox photos from our garden. There’s a fox couple in evidence this spring, and the vixen looks pregnant so I imagine I’ll be taking another load of photos soo. So far I have only seen them at dusk or after dark. They look very solid and healthy.

  13. Love this guy’s boots! Great photo.
