19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Arabian Red Fox

I was trail running in the Hajar mountains when I noticed a fox watching me from behind the boulders. I stopped so that I wouldn't scare it away. I returned to the trail every morning for about 2 months. After a few weeks not only had 1 but 2 foxes accompanying me on part of the trail. Once they had got used to my presence I ditched running in favour of taking pictures. I used a wide angle lens as the creatures were extremely inquisitive and ventured very close.
