Spacewalk of a fennec

A postcard from Mars? It would seem so, given the strange setting in which an animal very similar to an extraterrestrial appears in front of me. Instead, I am in the Sahara Desert, where the sand at times tends to pink, orange and gray shadows and the creature with alien ears is of the same evanescent colour. I am photographing a Fennec, the desert fox, and I have never seen anything like it.
