The charming red fox, Sherlock, from the Utica Zoo in Utica, NY. This fox has the most bi-polar personality. In the summer he will growl at all the visitors. If you visit in the winter when hardly anybody is at the zoo, he'll whine to you and try to get as close as possible.
I'm glad that you like it! I was probably only about 12-15 feet from him when I took this. The lighting was perfect that day because usually the bars of his exhibit ruin my attempts to get fullbody photos when he's that close. Normally I can only get hi-res profile shots of him.
Thank you! This guy is one of my all-time favorite animals I've met at zoos and I was really excited to finally get such a nice photo of him last winter. The Utica Zoo actually sells this image on magnets in their gift shop too!
