Life imitated art when a wild fox was captured seemingly posing with a graffiti version.
Photographer Martin West, 39, captured the incredible scene in London's Turnpike Lane over the weekend.
He explains: "I often saw this street art on a wall in North London and at a quick glance, had mistaken it for a real fox.
"One evening over this last weekend I was walking by and saw a couple of foxes playing nearby. I took my camera out and waited a little while.
"Eventually, one of the foxes came over to street art and looked up. It looked like it was admiring the street art.
"I was really happy to get the shot, it felt like a once in a lifetime!
"There are a number of foxes in the area due to it being near an allotment, where they are pretty undisturbed. They come out at night, and feed from the dustbins and scraps left in the area.
"They are used to humans. It did see me, but was not bothered by my presence. It only ran away when somebody walked closely past it, not realizing it was there."
