Arabian Red Fox – Dhahran Hills

Late in the evening when driving home from birding I spotted an Arabian Red Fox sitting by the side of a track some way away. I got out of the car expecting the fox to run away, but it remained sitting in the same place looking at me. I gradually worked my way closer to the animal and it remained in place until I got to about ten metres from it. I took a few photos, although it was now getting fairly dark and then retreated back to the car to watch it. After a short while it got up and started walking towards the car, when it became apparent it was a female. Although I took a few photos most did not come out well as the light was poor and I was hand holding my big 600mm lens. The ones below were my best attempts.
