Very nice photo series of an animal that I know is not easy to photograph.

Great photos. I have seen a few in the wild, but was never able to get a picture.

Hi Charlie and thank you. The first den is in a meadow adjacent to the parking lot of the Prince of Wales Hotel. The first day we were just 2 photographers and kept a very respectful distance, I was using Bigma the other guy was using 400mm Canon glass. We were there probably 3 1/2 hours. Was fun watching them. Two days later the hotel opened for the season and the foxes became a tourist attraction, people all over the place and almost on top of the den crowding the foxes. I didn't go back after that.They will find a better place for next year, it's really too bad that people can't use their head at times.

Thank you, this den was relatively easy, the second one was more challenging.

Some amazing photos of a very difficult subject. Thanks for sharing, and thanks also for respecting their "privacy" more so than all the hotel tourists. Do hope they find a more secluded den next time, but glad you were able to find and photograph this one...

Great pictures. That Fox parent is a very efficient hunter and given the size of her brood...she has to be.

Thank you, that fox was back about every 20 minutes with grub for the kits, she had 6 of them to feed.
