We are neighbours today!
A great capture of a couple of sparring Red Foxes in your backyard! I like the composition on the slope and the postures of both foxes are great. Nice POV, exposure and sharpness too.
TFS this delight,

It's an interesting interaction between the two foxes, you captured here.
Wish I could photograph them in my garden...

Im no expert on Fox behaviour but the one on the lower ground seems to be in a very submissive pose (cowering and the tail between the legs) whilst the more dominant one has taken the high ground.
Its a fine capture and the long cold snap has even bought an Urban fox into my car park at work at 10am today.
Photographically all is spot on...Congratulations on this fine capture of natural behaviour.
All the Best

I get bobcats, deer, and an occasional javelina in my back yard but never a red fox! This is a great shot - beautiful face on the fox facing us. He must be the aggressive one - the other seems to be cowering. You captured the moment perfectly.

It is a rare day when we are allowed to see a Red fox, let alone two interacting with one another, regardless of anger or play. The image is sharp and well cropped, an excellent post. Great action scene with that tail tucked and ears down, guess who's the aggressive one?

This shot is priceless, Pekka!!!!
The poses are superb.
You're so lucky to have been able to get so close to wild foxes!
Very, very well done,

Brilliant. Very rare shot.
Indeed they are mostly nocturnal and shots with a flash are never that good.
The action you've frozen is rare and great as well.
This happens in your backyard, incredible. Great action captured excellently with your great camera work. The lower one seems to be submissive, how did this turn out Pekka.
Thanks for sharing.

Lovely sight to see from your own window! These two do look very playful. Lovely poses captured and despite shooting through glass this is clear, sharp and with a nice exposure

Thanks for sharing this nature shot in excellent framing and timely capture. You did very well in keeping the exposure perfect against the white snow. Amazing details beautifully executed in the frame.
Best regards and have a wonderful week ahead.
