Fox at Amsterdamse Waterleiding Duinen This was my reward for the day. It took many hours to find this fox at the Amsterdamse Waterleiding Duinen. I was happy to capture it just chilling next to the path, but it was already leaving after a minute. Just before it did, it turned its head and stared back into the sun, giving me good light for this shot.

  3. Lovely - I've never seen a fox in the wild (though my in-laws had one coming round to their house begging for scraps, so I've seen photos. They live in a pretty rural place) Posted 5 years ago
    1. They're an increasingly rare sight here as well. Posted 5 years ago

Its range has increased alongside human expansion, having been introduced to Australia, where it is considered harmful to native mammal and bird populations. Because of these factors, it is listed as Least Concern for extinction by the IUCN. It.. more
