This is the same alpha female from our Bubblers trip to my favorite fox location. It was snowing lightly and she’s still wearing a crown of snow flakes.

I’m primarily a nature photographer, usually wildlife, and I have lots of access to wildlife in Colorado. My main goal is to capture some of the individual personality of each of the animals I photograph – to document not just a fox, for instance, but to show something of that specific fox, something unique about that individual animal.

    so beautiful with that curious look, what does she see?

  • I think Kasey was shivering so violently from the cold that snow was falling off of nearby branches – it was quite the sight . . . :)
