    I would have shot stopped down if I could have to sharpen the nose up a tad, the fox was behind a fence and the only way to blur the fence was to shoot it wide open:

    Here is what I was dealing with:

    You did good with the fence in there. I know how difficult it is to avoid one.

    For the Pixel Peepers amongst us, here is the eye at 200 percent... I love the catchlight of the geodesic domed sky.

    Nice shot! I haven't been to Henry Doorly in years.

    Here I was hoping it was a picture of one of my favorite establishments. It's in Lincoln and not Omaha, but still...

    Nice!

    The DOF issue is minimized because the focus is in the right place, great capture. Shooting through fences is definitely not ideal, great work.
