This (little) fat fox must have gotten the fright of its life after my dog chased it into the corner of the garden.. Never touched it, friendly dog, friendly fox, that was that.. I took my dog back inside and then came back out and gave the fox some bread. Got a few shots, too. :)

You have got to be kidding. That is one beautiful creature. While it is obvious that you could easily train it to pose for your camera to bet even better shots, which would be tempting.

But then, is that moral? I like the idea of wild animals being, uh,,,,,,, wild, rather than tamed. That is a great looking animal, and you sure did a good job of capturing it. He is not going hungry is he? I'll bet he knows where every pet food bowl in the neighborhood is. ha.

Yeah I wasn't sure whether to feed him or not, like you, I don't want to make them .. less wild?.. I've no idea where he comes from. A slice of bread will do though, wouldn't want to see him starve - Although, you're probably right, he probably knows ALL the places to get food.

Not really intending to judge but it looks as though (in #3) by intervening, you brought a little pleasure to one of God's creatures.

Amazing images, all...

You shot these with a 50mm lens! Wow you must have been realy close to get such great detail.
He looks very health but around here if a wild animal gets that close we worry about rabies.

Yeah, keep those hands back. On the other hand as fat as he is I think he's getting people food. They are known to befriend people in general once they've associated people with food.

Well folks I don't know, I'm trying to figure out how you got him to take that set of poses. Every picture is to say the least, great. Thanks for sharing.

Either that or the animated fox in one of those new computer animation cartoons looks a lot more realistic than I'd thought I should expect. I'm thinking the latter. I thought that when I shot this pic (that the animation movies had a more realistic looking fox than I thought they did).

His pic makes me think the same thing.

Those are amazing shots! I have a greenbelt behind my place with some fox that are fairly easy to shoot, but with a 100-400mm. Not a 50mm!!!

And the fox in my greenbelt won't let you comb the matted part of their fur out. Obviously your fox is used to being preened before a photoshoot. Did he mind it when you posed his tail around front just perfectly? What's the command to make them look to the left???

I'm just really jealous!
