Sleeping fox

This was taken ages ago at the domestic zoo in Reykjavík. The little white spots in the photo are probably specks of dust that got on the photo before I scanned it and I didn't notice when I was resizing it in Photoshop.

This is the Icelandic subspecies of Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus fuliginosus), the rarer variety whose fur colour changes seasonally. In the summer they have brown fur and are indistinguishable from the variety that stays brown all year round.

I think the strange bokeh in the background is a scanning problem - I certainly can't see it in the print.

Scanned photo. Nikon F-301.
