Weekly Photo Challenge: Hidden


Well nothing immediately comes to mind on this one – except this photo I took at the San Diego Safari Park last week.  This is a bat eared fox from Africa.  He and a couple of his cohorts were definitely trying to hide behind some trees but couldn’t escape the long reach of my lens….

 

You can't see me.....
