A much awaited prized catch on the third expedition last week to North Sikkim where the Himalaya confluences the Tibetan plateu at an elevation of 17,500ft (-12degree celsius and needed oxygen support for a while )

What an amazing adventure and gorgeous result! Such a beautiful fox-I've never seen or heard of this one. I really appreciate not only this excellent capture, but the opportunity to see this fox, and know that it exists. Thank you!

Well done to find one of these distinctive foxes!  This is only the third time we've had a photo of them in Wildlife, the other two being from Milo Burcham and Alister Benn, so this is a real treat.  :) 

You got a lovely clear view of this one, showing that iconic square head and shorter muzzle of these little beauties, and they mate for life, so they get my vote!

After all the effort put in to get this image your heart must have been pounding while depressing the shutter for this shot. A classic image of almost any animal, but certainly a wonderful image of such a rare one. Congrats on such a great job and wonderful image.

Really congratulations for this incredible shot of this beautiful fox and for the commitment faced.
A double satisfaction.
