Red fox

Great photo of gorgeous animal. I live towards the edge of a city and see foxes trotting through side streets and alleys but never relaxed in a garden like this. Fantastic.

Great Pic


I'm always hoping to spot a Fox, but so far have had no success.

That's a great pic. Did you get close or is there a lot of zoom?

There is a bit of zoom, but not much, we just saw it asleep so i ran back to get my camera and it just sleept, i would say we were about 2.5 meters away

Congratulations on a great picture...couldnt help but notice the hair loss around the base of the tail - most likely to be mange and/or flea dermatitis which are both common amongst foxes.

Very unusual photo. You rarely see foxes sleeping above ground. I assume this is a vagrant, not attached to any den. I suspect it is a young animal recently ejected from its home territory. It looks well fed but there are signs of mange, as kc5467 mentions, around the rump.

This is clearly a picture of a heron! (Latin tag: Heroni Heronus)
