Not your everyday wildlife picture, our reader photo of the day is a study in sly light.

Most wildlife photos are framed and lit in a way to showcase an animal in its surroundings. But magical things can happen when the norm is ignored, as in this photo by Christina Anne M. Context is stripped and we're left with little more than a handsome fox peering from the darkness, lighting up the night with its intense gaze ... and the effect could hardly be more striking.
