This is one little furry and fuzzy Red Fox Kit!
I had the opportunity to photograph a Fox den with some of the guys I shoot with. This is one of the results. Let me tell you, this was a blast! We waited close to 4 1/2 hours but the 30 minutes we had with mama vixen and her kits was priceless! This was quite a rare instance with this shot taken at a fleeting moment when one kit was sitting down, watching closely the other kits and mom while staring back at all of us who were photographing. All of 3 seconds worth to get the shot off before he ran off to play with the others.
