Bright Eyes Photo Contest Finalist

Not a Rabbit I know but I thought the title was appropriate for this shot of a Red Fox. Taken in the evening, the warm light really made his eyes shine and brought out the red coat of these often persecuted animals. Taken at a location not far from my home. I laid prone for this shot to get a nice eye level point of view and got covered in mud but the end result was well worth the telling off from my wife.

100-400L IS, monopod, 1/500th @ f/6.3, ISO 200, RAW.
