Mother Vixen Fox returns to her den after hunting to nurse her Red Fox Kits. Captured in the mountains of Colorado at a Fox den, it was utterly amazing to be able to watch, witness and study these amazing predators. The light at times was quite interesting to work with producing some nice saturated shadows from the diffused light.

    You are just s lucky to get to see these sweet little things…I want to see them too. :)
    As for the photograph, the lighting is crazy good, so perfect. It almost looks like you have them in a studio because of the way the background blends with them so well. This is really awesome but I’m not surprised by that at all.
    I miss you.
