Red Fox - Donnelly, Idaho

It has been a long hard winter and this fox's coat has been bleached by the winter sun. The fox is starting to shed its' winter coat and looks a little ragged.
I took this photo last spring near my property in Donnelly, Idaho. This fox and its' mate had a den with six kits. The den was dug up a week later by someone's dog and I don't know if the kits survived or not. I didn't see them again.

  1. Ughhh, so sorry the dog dug up the lot and I do hope the parents moved the kits someplace else and to safety. I think that though it may have been shedding, it is most certainly a very lovely creature all the same~
