    Ok, I love this shot. I think B&W was the right choice, but I'd love to see a color version. It looks like you got the focus right on, and the symmetry of the shot is just great. If I had to nitpick, a slightly higher f/stop might have been nice to at least get the whole head in focus, but it still looks great.

    awww! Too cute!

    Great work, personally I like that the whole head isn't in focus.

    cute indeed, but that would be a fennec (or desert fox) not just a fox! :)

    Oh, so cute. Great shot. He's on a bed? Is he a pet?

    Thanks everyone. Fennec / Desert fox? okay Thanks for the correction.


    I took this photo in St. Louis Zoo. Here -> Fennec Fox :: Saint Louis Zoo

    And I do not know why the zoo gave them the bed .... but I am sure it is VERY comfortable. And they (yes, 2 of them) seems to enjoy it very much when I saw them.:lol:

    I like the composition on this (nice lines). The B&W treatment and the DOF work very well for this image.

    I tried to convince my husband to let me have one of these as pets :) I fell absolutely in love with their big ears. They act a lot like cats evidently, but it was a no go. :lol:

    Great capture :) It makes me want one all over again!
