Fox Kits Drenched and Nuzzling by 

This very rainy morning, the fox kits were hanging out by the entrance to their den waiting for their breakfast, voles from the nearby meadow, which arrived dangling from mom’s muzzle. This year the fox vixen chose her den in a culvert off a meadow in the middle of the town of Jackson. Needless to say, the family caused quite a stir with the locals and particularly the wildlife photographers. Fortunately, the foul weather left me alone with the fox family this lovely morning. Canon 40D, Jackson, Wy, USA, f5.6, 1/200, focal length 400mm, RAW, ISO 500. Views 2,350 and Faves 43 as of 26 June 2012, thanks for dropping by!
