First I have to thank everyone for such amazing comments! I can't believe the score all week I have been watching just expecting the bottom to drop out but it didn't, I couldn't be happier. I took this shot at a friends farm, fox hang around there all the time and are used to seeing people. I was lucky to get so close and am totally thrilled with the outcome.

I know I've said it before, but this shot exemplifies everything that "is" photography. Absolutely perfect. Breathtaking. I can actually "feel" the fox's racing emotions and cold nose.

that sounds so exciting to get that close. Foxes lived in Missouri where I grew up, but I never saw one. Out here in New Mexico we have coyotes which are fascinating as well and also hard to get close to. People still shoot them here. sad but true

I know I have said how wonderful this image is but had to write another comment here.
The more I see this awesome image, the more I love it, and I loved it the very first time I saw it, and still do.....

Does that make sense.

While reading Langdon's comments during his birthday challenge I fell upon this wonderful photo of yours. It is absolutely spectacular. My clictacamera photo group has huge fans of a wolf type huskie with piercing eyes we found two years ago. I can now challenge our "top dog" award next Wednesday during class. Congratulations on a splendid entry.

Excellent color and textures and what a pose... Great pic.
(PS - I noticed that you received a couple of 1,2 & 3 ratings... what are people thinking? Are they the "competition" in the particular contest - I had a similar thing happen with my blue ribbon??).
Nice work,

Gor-or-or-or-geous! CONGRATS!!!!! (and a little side note to everyone who assumed that this was not in the wild and voted your assumption, I would like to suggest that we all please be careful not to do that. It's not fair to the photographer in any challenge. We have to trust that the photographer interprets the challenge as he or she sees fit and simply vote on the picture, not on the assumption. it's always dangerous to assume in any situation in life, because there's always a 50% chance that we will be wrong.)

Zoo shot? I wonder if Hahn23 voted you low on his preceived DNMC. This should be voted as you see it. IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU CAN SEE A BACKGROUND!

This is an excellent shot even if if was taken in your living room.

Honestly, who doesn't love foxes (except some grumpy farmers). This one, obviously, is very nice. The angle is a little bizarre though. Amazingly, I think this could have been a touch better with a better vantage point...

Really an amazing shot, highly deserving of the blue ribbon. Excellent detail and lighting! What's even more amazing is seeing what lens you used and how close you must've been to the usually very skittish subject! I would've guessed you were using at least a 300mm prime lens to get so close with such outstanding detail. Very nice work, congratulations!
