[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These three siblings were waiting for mom to come home with dinner. Thier den an old badger hole was located one kilometer from the gas plant that I work at near Jenner. There were six pups in total these three were the bold ones and stayed around when vehicles approached on the road. This photo was taken from the truck window and has been cropped.

Hi Rick,
a old badger hole as their den, this is interesting. They sure look curious and watching you closely. Very nice capture, beautiful poses and the eye contact is wonderful. What a great shot.

great shot! wonderful pose with all these cuties looking to see what you were up to! Love it! TFS

thanks for your comments on my photo " Wingless Duck" :o)

Salut Rick

Belle et intéressante composition photographique bien réalisée pour ces petits renards si mignons. Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté
Merci et au revoir...JP
Les sourires demain

I can't tell you how jealous we are of all the animals that inhabit your world! You got a shot like that from your truck window AGGGGHHH! : P This is so adorable. Not only did they arrange themselves artfully but they all know to look at the camera! When I drag your image to the desktop the colors are much more saturated than they look on TN. I wonder if others have noticed that.

Thanks for sharing
Evelynn : )

Hi Rick,
superb shot of the Kits.I'm curious how far away from them were you when you took this shot? Bob

Great shot. Young foxes look so much cuter than old scabby looking ones. I agree on the softness.. but I guess that could just be an illusion. With F2.8 and a fussy background the foreground always gets that extra bit of sharp look.

Hi Rick,
How cute :o) I liked the pose you captured a lot, your timing was very good. TFS

Hello Rick,
Yes indeed, they look good!
A tad soft but that suits the cuteness...
It is interesting to see how they all focus on the photographer; a lovely presentation!
