Focus by Iamidaho Focus by Iamidaho
Ears and Eyes forward, a fox watches a ground squirrel hole intently for signs of activity.

One of my favorite things about this image is the reflection of the sky and Lamar valley within in its eye.

Yellowstone National Park

Focus by =Iamidaho Shot not in capture but in the wild, this shot is simply amazing, the detail is outstanding....it is like you are in the middle of the photo itself observing this Fox....a wonderful shot from a great wildlife photographer! ( Suggested by KateHughes and Featured by kkart )

Neat shadow effect, looks like it is wearing a coat with a high collar.

Awesome shot, good to see someone else who has photos of free and wild animals, i think photographing animals in zoos and game farms takes the wild out of wildlife photography.
