Although my primary focus in photography is birds I also enjoy taking images of the scenery, flora and wildlife I see on my photographic journeys. On my last trip up to Idaho and Montana I was able to take some images of Red Fox kits thanks to Bill and Kathleen Pelc of Dillon who pointed out where their den was.
The light was awful when I photographed the fox kits with gray, cloudy skies overhead I had no choice but to bump up my ISO to gain some shutter speed.
The den was on a sagebrush and grass covered hillside and as far as I know there were only three kits or at least I only ever saw three of them. In this photograph the trio of Red Fox Kits were close together outside of the den and I liked how they appeared to be waiting for something. Maybe they were waiting for the adult to bring them something to eat.
I do wish the light had been better because they played and chased each other all over the hillside and I could have gotten some wonderful images of them playing.
Still, I like this image because when I took it I felt that for a moment I was part of their world and this photo reminds me of that.
Life is good.
