They live in South half of South America, and are the most distributed wild animal of Argentina. It is adapted to many natural scenes, in special the open areas and avoiding forests and thick forests. Foxes adapts to the human presence and the modifications of his habitat and is recounts to find it in agroecosystems and suburban zones. It is fed on rodents, European hares (Lepus europaeus), and tinamous (Tinamidae). In other zones also it eats fruits of tala (Celtis tala) and crabs. He is normally quiet but it emits a dry voice and powerful "guaal". It marks his territory with a penetrating scent that in certain way remembers to the skunk ones. Although it is hunted by his skin, seems not to be in danger.

Hi Hernan
So, what happened to the notes this time? I know you normally supply good notes so it is a bit strange to see a blank page on one or your postings.
Very interesting POV on this fox head and I think the very tight crop actually suits the photo. The colours are a bit strange though, as it looks like there is a green tone to the whole photo. The DOF is fine with good details and the exposure was well controlled.
Well done and TFS

Hello Hernan,
It's an interesting POV, with some nice detail and framed well. Good job!
Thanx for the note too :)

Hi Hernan,
A nice portrait on this fox. Nice color and detail. Only way to have made it better was to get some better eye contact with the camera. His eyes look dead when they are all black.

Dear Hernan,
Beautiful details on the fur. We even see the interior of the ears. Very nice portrait.
All the best,
