Mouth Wide Open - fox on grass cuttings
Photographer: Paul Williams
Location: Bristol, UK
Story: 
A family of urban foxes live in an area of my garden that I’ve purposely left wild. They often come onto the main lawn to play and relax in the sun - especially when I leave the grass to grow. I’d just cut the overgrown lawn and piled the grass cuttings in a corner. It wasn’t long before a fox appeared, climbed the pile and yawned before settling down for a nap. I took this photo from my dining room table, slowly closing the curtains to avoid him noticing me, and poking my lens through the gap.
