I tried to photograph the bat eared fox at twycross zoo in the UK a few months ago (do you remember my other piccies?). I waited outside the enclosure for an hour or so, got bored, went to the cafe for yums and noms.
I came back to see the bugger trot across the enclosure in perfect view into his private sleeping box before I could get my camera out >.<
I'm just going to leave the photography to you, you're a lot better at it than me XD

how is the zoo after the flood?

I always love all of your work, even if I rarely comment...your loving pictures, especially of my favourite foxes and of course wolves, are so charming and compelling, and they convey an accessible personality that so many other photographers miss.

I especially love bat-eared foxes. They're so darling and enchanting. :)

Thank you so much for all of your beautiful work.
