The curious Fox

The curious fox, St Ana Lake, Romania - 19 Jan 2013 Photographer Dan Dinu encounters a curious fox as he walked in the woods.. This curious fox was definitely ready for its close-up. And luckily his pal Cristian Goga was able to snap the far-from-camera-shy getting up close and personal with the photographer. Dan was making his way to St Ana Lake in central Romania when he encountered the male fox. He explains: "It was a usual day when I and my colleague were shooting in the St. Ana Lake area. "After a while in the forest taking photos of interesting landscape, covered in snow and of a photogenic mist, we agreed to make our way back home. "On the way back, after a bend, the fox appeared in front of us. I stopped the car and the fox, instead running away, the way it should have been natural, started to get closer. "Of course, I didn't miss the chance and I took some photos. First, I used the telephoto lens and then, as the fox came closer, I used a wide lens. That's the explanation for the photo taken very close with the animal captured completely into the camera. "Although I initially thought that the fox behaved like that with everyone, as cars stopped near the road, it got away and continued its way into the forest. "The male fox behaviour is justified due to the fact that it has been raised around by a forest ranger, therefore it was used with people presence. Yet, it is not right to encourage such a behaviour, as animals must remain wild. It cannot be sure that next time, instead of looking at a camera, it will look into a rifle." http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=474440695942983&set=a.342434892476898.89335.338077742912613&type=1&relevant_count=1
