Fox Fantasy by thrumyeye Fox Fantasy by thrumyeye
Fox - vulpes vulpes

I had this little meet a fox some day.
Not only spotting him from a far distance, not catching only a glimpse of his tail, but really seeing one.
And secretly I hoped that on that day, I might be able to take some nice photograps, too.
And very very secretly I hoped I would find this fox in a beautiful, natural environment and I guess I must have had some very secret fantasies about finding a fox in the snow.
But, realizing that both foxes and snow are not the most common thing here, I knew this perfect combination would be quite a challenge to find and it might take a while to realize this dream.

This week, a colleague photographer and I and I decided to try our luck and went to a beautiful Dutch dune area.
Although the whole country was covered with snow at that moment, we managed to find one of the few snowless spots.
The nature was gorgeous nonetheless, the weather was perfect and we had a great time, so we didn't really miss the snow.

All of a sudden, totally against all weather forecasts, it started to snow like it would never end.
In two hours the green trees and yellow sheer disapeared under 15 cm white blanket and we found ourselves in a undescribably beautiful world. (and we managed to find our way back through all this whiteness, too :))

And then,just when we least expected it...a fox popped out of the bushes and came walking out of the forest right towards us...! It had gotten cloudy at this time and it was still snowing heavily, so although my photos could have been a higher quality, this magical scene is burned in my memory for ever....

Fewer things are more beautiful than a red fox in the snow. :heart:

I love your fox images, and all the others!! :)
Wow! I really like your story! I had a similar encounter with a silver fox in the middle of the night at work. Many things hapened that night with that beautiful fox and the story is a bit long to be told here... Just to say that he came so close I could almost pet him! When I got back outside, I found him laying down in the snow awaiting for my return...!!! :D
