This big boy liked to be had fed. A favorite treat was leftover biscuits.

Isn't that dangerous? Also, don't make eye contact! ;D
He was raised from a calf and was a big gentle pet for those that knew him. Unfortunately he died of a disease caused by parasites in the liver. He would come when called expecting a hand out.

First post to forums.
Picture taken last fall. Fox was really curious and followed me around about an hour.
Got few pictures of him and this was the best of all of them. Rest of the pictures he had a weird pose or I missed focus.
Will update camera settings later when back at computer.

Very nice shot....and  Welcome to CR  :)

Really nice picture of that fox. I like it.
a little bit more sunlight and it would have been even better.
but that's not in your hand. of course.
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

Anyone see that video of the photog butting heads with an aggressive male elk for 7 minutes in Oct 2013 in the Smokey Mountains Park? I was worried about him, but it turns out OK. Scarey :o

Here is a link to the video.

Hmm!  :o That could have been me with my young buck moose.  In my favor my moose is not a park animal that mixes with humans, I think!

Thanks for posting Serendipidy!

Good looking fox!

serendipidy, a FB friend was there when it happened and posted some shots of it.  Pretty crazy but no punctures so the guy has that plus a cool story going for him.

Here is another pair from this last Sunday of a young buck chasing a doe.


Taken within five seconds of each other at close to point blank range.  5D MK III w/800mm f/5.6.  For any pixel peepers, the top is a slight left side crop while the second is the full frame.

Here's the last moose I'll post for now.  I think it conveys the massiveness of these guys nicely.

It's been a while since I've seen a Peed off Blue Tongue, grew up in the Northern wheat belt area of West Aussie, these guys provided a reasonable amount of distraction as a Kid.

Thanks for Posting.
