That's a bloody good spot, Graham. This picture has the closest I've seen to one in all of its three dimensions. The one I saw without the aid of a book or a computer was masquerading as a road marking.

they definitely look better when they're not flat-packed by transport who ;D

thanks for the visit :)

plenty live here in the heat but tend to decimate the wild life as most of the animals are not as fast or as wily. steve

are you talking introduced ones there steve ? - not a good idea - lovely animals, but in the right place!

This is a beautiful animal, Graham - and well spotted!! Are there often foxes trotting around for photographers in your area, or were you just very lucky??

Thanks for sharing this little gem of a photo!!

Warm wishes, Hazel

Hi Hazel - this fox lives fairly locally, but he and his mate seem to enjoy the snow - I haven't seen the so much for ages - apparently it's their mating season now, so they're a little more in evidence for that reason too ;)

Thanks to you also Brumm2009 I appreciate your visit and kind remarks

This is a fantastic shot of this wicked looking Mr. Fox, Graham you've even got the twinkle in his eye, full screen even better, YS for this one.

Warm Wishes, Karen.

Thanks so much for that Karen - It was no nice just watching the fox enjoying the snow, but catching the right moments without long bursts of continuous shooting, which would have scared him off, was a bit of a matter of luck, so I was really happy to see this come out so well :)

thanks Dimitris - these are country foxes and still wary of people, but they are nice looking specimens, anyway :)

Excellent capture of the fox.

Greetings, Jan

thanks again Jan - this is a wild country fox and quite shy of people, but a beautiful specimen, and I was so happy that he not just came out in the snow for me, but enjoyed being out in the snow.:)
