I'm Beautiful And I Know It

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 13 May 2013 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Gray Fox Nacho has been photographed so much that he is very used to seeing my camera. I think he knows what a beauty he is, and he will strike a pose.

Will work for grapes! ;-)
