The Obedient Fox

Whilst out for an evening coastal walk in late Spring I was lucky enough to spot this beautiful red fox foraging along a beach amongst purple and turquoise-hued rocks. As I watched and photographed it from a good distance it would frequently pause to sit and observe me in return. This particular shot is my favourite from the encounter; the fox is sitting as obediently as a well-trained pet dog and the shades of purple and blue remind me of astronomical photos of distant galaxies with the scattered white limpets creating the effect of stars! The photograph was taken near Ballycotton in County Cork, Ireland.
