Fox Kit

June 05, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

What's more fun than photographing a cute baby animal?

Fox kits are typically born in April, and stay in the den with mom for four or five weeks.

Every few hours, mom returns to nurse the kits and allow them to play in front of the den for a few minutes.  After that, the kits hide in the safety of the den until a parent returns.

These fox parents chose a peculiar place to build their den: underneath a laundromat in Grand Teton National Park!

As a result, most images have the ugly concrete foundation behind the kits ... unless you can catch them on an outing in the nearby trees. 

I made this image well after sunset, after waiting for over 8 hours at the den waiting for the kits to come out. 

This image is available as a Fine Art Print: click here for my Etsy shop.
