Sometimes a photograph speaks more than words. Photographed this young red fox on Mount Rainier a few days ago. I was completely fascinated by the golden ring of fur encircling its face, and the dark hairs around the eyes and neck plus the rich color of the evergreens behind it created perfect contrast to make this image.

I’d write more but it’s such a beautiful day that it would be a crime to stay indoors. Later!

    Lucky shot! The foxes I’ve seen have been so elusive.
