Three Years Ago : Photogenic Fox

I have been trying for years to get a nice portrait of a fox.
I recently reached my goal.

It was the middle of the day. While driving down a country road near Deep Creek Lake, MD., we saw a red fox trotting along the double yellow lines.

Every time our car stopped, the fox paused and turned around to look at us. The fox seemed as curious about us as we were about it.

After a few hundred yards of this back and fourth, the fox darted off into a field and stopped again looking back as I fired off a few frames from my car window.

Bingo!

Below is another shot of the fox as it ran thru the field.

    Great shots! Recently I managed to get some shots of the red fox kits who live in a den in our rock wall. I didn’t realize they molt. But 2 weeks after I saw them as adorable fluffy babies they appeared as awkward adolescents. Scratching up a storm they seemed eager to lose their baby fur and get on with hunting lessons in the woods.
