This was a wild but brave little fox in Rocky Mountain National Park. As long as we didn't move too fast, we could get close enough for photos.

Oh Mr Fox you are beautiful. He looks much better, well fed and cleaner than the scraggy foxes that live near us and hunt thru our dustbins!

Some of these animals probably get so use to people in these parks.
