Fox watching

Fox kits in Nanton - © Christopher Martin-1319

I have wanted to photograph Red fox kits for a long time and with a friendly tip from a fellow photographer (thank you Mike!), was able to find this beautiful family last Wednesday evening.  The photograph above is of two of the five, or possibly six, young foxes as they watched a couple of their siblings playing off to the right.  The sun slid in and out of the clouds early on and fought through some haze along the way so it was a great evening for lighting.  On this particularly bright moment, I liked the contrast of the dreamy, abstract look of the field with the alert stares and sharp backlit outline of the foxes.

  7. The placement makes such a difference, with the foreground all hazy grasses, their heads popped up, steady gazes outward. Lovely!
