Reaching back to last March for this image in what had to have been one of my favorite wildlife encounters of 2016. This handsome creature was relaxing in a friend’s backyard and he was kind enough to invite me over for a photo session with it.
For 20 minutes or so the two of us snapped away with the Fox giving us an amazing variety of poses, all the while not really caring that we were right there by it. Red Foxes aren’t really all that rare but it is rare to see them, let alone get this kind of quality time with one. Just an amazing encounter.
