This is the little vixen the locals call Scarface (for obvious reasons).

What strikes me most about this image is the asymmetrical patch of white on her muzzle and that bushy, bushy tail.

A very pretty little fox despite her scar.

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.

    She’s really pretty – good match for the Alpha guy (has he got a name yet?) Excellent shot, like all the others :-)

  • The locals call the alpha male Grumpy – I just can’t bring myself to call him that
