A chance encounter and my first time ever seeing one of these in person. This beautiful animal ran across the road ahead of me and thankfully, stopped just long enough for me to snag a few pictures. It was straight into the early morning sun so tough shooting conditions but I was ecstatic just to have seen it.
These small foxes can be found across the grasslands of North America although they are not seen often. It was nearly extinct in the 1930s but due to conservation efforts, education and reintroductions, their numbers have rebounded.
