Artist's Description

I know, corny title, but I’m trying to highlight the drama of the little fox community.

This is the alpha female (one of the locals calls her “Pock’s wife”). Here where the drama starts (or continues, if you’ve been keeping up the the story so far).

Last year, she was the mother of Pock’s (the until-recently alpha male) litter of kits. This season, she was being fed by the beta (well, until recently beta, now possibly alpha) male. Foxes usually don’t share food unless the male is bringing food to the nursing female or the female brings food to the kits when they’re older.

You can pretty clearly see evidence that she’s been nursing, and she must have popped out of the den to get a little fresh air. I have some other photos from this series that really demonstrate she’s been nursing (if you know what I mean, and I think you do).

Another tough exposure day, with bright sun reflected off snow mixed with deep shadows. This days photos turned out better overall that the day before (too much shooting into the sun and washed out colors), and I do like the cooler blue tone and chiaroscuro lighting on her face.
