Robert was driving a water truck from Billings to Kalispell, (Montana, USA)and I was following him in my pickup. As we left Helena, headed for Lincoln, I noticed a dust ball along the highway. The ball of dust flew alongside the road, changed shape, sifted around and suddenly revealed some young fox, playing beside their den.
I slammed to a stop, grabbed the camera and began shooting. Robert saw me stop, so he stopped and walked back to where I sat. We watched these fox playing for an hour.
This photo is one of their rare quiet moments.
I doctored my photo with another photo layer of texture, and blurring techniques until I liked it and here’s the result.
