Paving the Way by Ashwings Paving the Way by Ashwings
Picture of a wild fox walking along a paved road I took in the evening today. :)

Never seen a wild fox this close! I had to be really still, they are so jumpy!

Damn Ash, that's a really cool pic !
I can't find where we can see your machine stuff, but I would love to know what were the parameters when you took it ! The fur is just astonishing... ! And the colors are wonderful. Well done !

Very cool. I'd slap this as my wallpaper, would the size be bigger.

This also somehow reminded me of a certain scene from the movie Collateral, even if the animal in question was a coyote.

Is it me, or does he look a little emaciated?
Great shot, but now I fear for the little dudes life…

It probably looks skinny because it's in his summer coat, so he/she is not all fluff! =D Plus I watched it catch a huge rat then store it, which was kinda interesting/gross, but that means it's eating at least!

Well, that's good to know.
Still, a wild creature in an urban landscape is a recipe for disaster.

Yes, they are actually very shy. We always have foxes around. There's a young fox around here and believe it or not, he comes near and plays with my dog. Very unusual. But I think he lost his mom. However. this pic reminds me of our fox! :)
