This curious fox showed his true cunning when he decided to turn the tables on a stunned photographer.

After spotting Michaela Walch's unattended camera, the creature crept up to experience life on the other side of the lens.

Ms Walch, had heard foxes were common at the campsite in the north-west of Canada, and so decided to put some food out in a bid to entice the animals and create a picture perfect moment.

The schoolteacher fed the foxes for several days and happily took a few pictures before accidentally leaving her camera equipment unattended only to glance up and discover one snap happy creature poised behind it.

Shocked, Ms Walch, from Innsbruck in Austria, quickly grabbed a spare camera to capture the hilarious moment.

She said: 'At first I put a few leftovers around my van so that the foxes would come close to me and I could get a better view.

'After a short time I could see five foxes. I was impressed by them because they were all so different.

'They were very suspicious at first but over a couple of days I still managed to get a few nice pictures.

'One fox seemed instantly interested in my camera equipment but I couldn't believe it when one day I looked up and saw her trying to be a photographer.

'She even tried to press the shutter and I couldn't help but laugh. It was very impressive to see though.

'Foxes are often mistaken for odious animals but they are actually gorgeous creatures and very clever too.'

    the fox is smiling and did it actually take a picture? these animals are thinking and working things out. they think , feel, act, and are just as important or more than us.

    Its unusual to see a little fox behind the camera, not surprised, not afraid of the new,it makes you think she wants to "cooperate" with humans, innocently and good willing, without figuring out about who is the vilain and who is the friend

    What a wonderful and funny story.. I would stop shot of luring a wild animal to close to habitation only because they would get used to humans and forget their natural fear of them. This could create a much bigger problem.
