    Cropped but not much as this little fellow was only 12ft away or so.

    The eye is nice and sharp.  Overall I feel there’s too much tree and not enough animal.  I suggest cropping although I’m not sure if it will be effective after that, because the bottom half of his face is hiddedn behind a branch.

    As noted, most of it’s face is blocked by the branches. If the face had been in front of the branches, you would have had a winner…

    Cute little fellow. As the others said, his face is mostly covered by the branches which spoil the image. Nasty little fellows, animals. They never listen to your directions….

    The image really has a great feel. I agree with others about having the animal’s face more in the image. Shooting by moving further to the left would have helped, but then the animal would have moved away sometimes. We never know. Other than that, the composition and other details look very good in my opinion 🙂

    I agree with everyone but in a blind 12 ft away its hard. Plus any further to the left I would have to deal with Bulls and at my age that is not going to happen since I was right on the fence line. LOL

    Yes.  This (the second shot) is THE ONE.

    Having that first image as part of a group of images of the same fox would be fine, but not so much as a stand alone wildlife photo.   Wow, I would like to see an animal that close and apparently not shy.  That must have been an exciting moment.  Second image …great!

    1/200 was the right speed to stop any motion.

    The second one by light miles.  Beautiful shot with amazing detail.  Too good for ST as cannot suggest any improvement.
