Excellent capture Tom. The clarity, the detail, the color...it's all great. Love the tail!


Hope all is well.

Thanks Barry, I appreciate. I am doing great and I hope that you are too. I have been scouting places to shoot in the Memphis area where I am now living. This little fox was a nice surprise at one of the spots. Take care, Tom

Those eyes! The red coat against the green grass works very well.

Thanks Mark. I think you pegged the thoughts of the fox. One leap and he vanished into the undergrowth. Tom
