Say cheese! These photogenic foxes seem to have the grasp of digital technology as they get their paws on a photographer’s camera to take snaps of each other.

The furry friends have the cheek to approach the camera and start organising their own photoshoot, posing for one another.

Reaching on their back legs, they in fact were reaching for the dog food inside the lens which they had sniffed out, but decided to click away instead.

Julian Ghahreman Rad, 24, from Vienna, Austria had taken the photos at Vienna’s National Park, but said he did have to wait out for a while for the foxes to approach.

He said: “I did have to wait for some hours hiding away in my tent, but suddenly, they just appeared and I could take the photos.

“The scene is just something you can’t photograph on any other day. I call myself lucky to get both in one photo. It was definitely worth the four plus hour wait hiding in my tent.”

The confused characters don’t seem to know which way to look when they first look into the lens and also back the other way.

But after a bit of pondering, it seems they worked out pretty well what was going on, even peering round the camera to organise their poses.
