It's impressive to see the fox and the wood sharing the exact same colors under ths snow ! That adds a beatifull harmony to the picture's composition. Well done!

Aww. Foxes are really amazing animals. I was waiting for them last year but there has been a mange outbreak so they've been having trouble. They used to eat a lot of mice around my house. I hope they'll be back soon. I have seen them a couple times near my house and heard one barking at night a couple years ago. I saw one doing that fox jump once too. And my family cat Tiny does fox pounces sometimes when I play with him. His teeth are really sharp.

Gorgeous - I love the complimentary colour of the wood and the fox's luxurious coat. I also love your perfect timing in capturing the fox mid-pounce. His focus is great - I hope that he captured the mouse he heard under the snow! Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent with us. Clap

Is that a photo taken just after the previous one (november or december)?
Just love these shots!
And the ones where they dive head on vertically in deep snow to catch a mouse or a gerbil that they hear... magnificent.
Thank you for sharing! ;-)

Yes, it is.. And yes, I love that diving, too. Never seen it in real though. Guess our snow is never deep enough and our foxes are wise enough to not try :laughing:

otherwise it'd be a real nose dive! ;-)

This is adorable. So much energy from that little fox. I am jealous of all your fox experiences.
