You betcha! He has a deep personality. The shot makes him appear as he is developing a connection with the photographer. Who knows? ;-)a

Edited post w/ a vertical crop. It works, composition-wise. I just need a better quality photo to start :-) It's been my mission this past week, these guys are tricky.

O and thanks, and your right about the personality and the connection. I've had some very good luck in getting to know some very special foxes. This one is a she and in her second year right here.

Ah! Well, I'm a total neophyte when it comes to assessing a fox's gender :-P

It is said that the connection between humans and dogs is much deeper than that of any other animal because when we look into their eyes, it is an almost similar emotional connection than when we look into another human's. That fox, although not a canine, comes close. Very close.

I've been after a good shot of a Yellow-rumped Warbler for a few weeks now. Very challenging bird to capture, as they prefer to stick to the dense underbrush instead of the usual treeline area. I went out early this morning, and was rewarded at last. Bonus was that I discovered there's both Ruby and Gold-crowned Kinglets in the area... they're my next adventure.

This is what I have so far w/ the Kinglets, this one of the Golden-crowned variety. Light wasn't where I wanted it, so there's still work to do...

I love the color of the sky at the top of the frame. . I mean I really love it!

I wish I could get my skies to look like that more often.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

Why would you think that a fox is not a canine?

Belonging to the family Canidae, it is, most certainly, a canine, as are all foxes, wolves, and dogs.

And yet I get schooled again! :lol:

Erudite POTN members: 2 - Me: ZERO!

I have no clue and just never looked it up. Guess that's what happens when you make assumptions.

I do petition for an "E" for effort, as I did look at the pic again after making the last post, noticing the head shape, snout, canine-type whiskers, etc. and thinking "well, maybe..."

Yes, all I had to do was google, but I'm lazy :p
