Photography : Fauna: Siesta

I've traveled to Chile three times to use telescopes. I was surprised to learn that there is a family of foxes ("sorro") on Cerro Tololo. The cooks feed them bread (which apparently the foxes like), so they tend to hang around the buildings and follow people. They are the size of a small dog and have rich-colored fur and gorgeous amber eyes. Since I was using a telescope at night, while the Sun was up I usually wasn't. However, I did manage to wander around on the first day and catch this fellow relaxing for a nap in the Sun.
