Absolutely beautiful soft shot. Wonderful pose. Must have not been an easy catch. Have you tried photo-editing out the dish for a more natural look?

no i didnt. im pretty open about takin my pics at the zoo where i work and those i visit so i dont bother trying to edit any of that out. i dont know that i would know how to even if i tried though :p

Haha, well, I didn't mean it as a "Make it look like it's not a zoo" but rather more of a thought of what might make the focus be on the animal with no distractions whatsoever. As for how... :(

That is the question, innit!

Incredible shot!!! Shooting through the glass is a challenge. The 'tweaked' looks natural IMO. =)

I tweak to try to make what the camera 'got' look like what my eyes see when I look at the subject ..and sometimes I completely change a photo for a certain affect. It's all good as long as there's no deception involved (IMHO).

What an adorable pose and what a wonderful creature! It almost looks like some Japanese Kami or a fairytale creature come to life because of how detached the fox looks from the surrounding.

Wonderful colors too. In short have a well earned face at ye! :)

yea unfortunately the glass really washed out it's color so i had to tweak it a little with photoshop just to get it back to normal. i got really lucky... theyre almost never out but since we're closed until march they were out and about (it doesnt hurt that it got a great big bone to play with today too)

Cool! I love zoos! Some of the pics in my gallery are from a particularly magical visit to the Ramat Gan Safari Zoo with two girl friends.

It's my favorite zoo in the world so far - excellent animal conditions, very friendly and educated staff, a very fine collection of beasts.

And the coolest part, most animals, instead of being in a cage just roam freely in a huge safari-like area (hence the name) and you just drive through, watching them live their life.

It's not only a safari place it also has a traditional part with very big and comfortable looking cages.
