Artist's Description

I’m fully aware I’ve gone a little nuts about foxes. I’m spending a lot of time with them, because I’m getting fox kits this year, dammit. So far no kits, but the adults look great in the bright green grass of Spring.

This is the alpha male (again), standing watch outside the den. Just after this image was made, he spun around, starring intently at something headed his way, and then bolted and ran.

I thought it might be a coyote sneaking up on him, or a dog off leash. Instead, it was a pair of ducks. A male and female, apparently out doing a little home shopping of their own. They even waddled over to the den entrance, took a couple of sniffs, and quickly waddled away.

The photographers on the scene were eagerly waiting for the female fox in the den to pop out and snag a duck, and let out a collective sigh of disappointment when no such action sequence manifested.

We had a nice overcast sky for some great diffused light and rich, saturated colors.
