Arabian Red Fox in the late evening – Dhahran Hills

The Arabian Red Foxes are still about in the same area of the camp but still only really showing in the late evening or at night when taking photos is difficult or impossible. I saw one the other night at 04:00 hrs on the way back to its normal area whilst setting off to go ringing in Bahrain. It is not unusual to see the foxes running though the desert/scrub areas after dark, particularly in the very early hours of the morning when hardly anyone is about. The photos below were taken at very close range without any crop to the pictures but were taken late in the evening on a very dusty day so are not as good as they could have been. It is still really amazing in my eyes to get so close to these animals and enjoy superb views even if the light is not perfect.
