Red Foxes

A Red fox mother and her kit interact near their den in southern Quebec in May 2021. I felt incredibly privileged to have the opportunity to observe this fox family this spring and summer.  A great deal of research in the field enabled me to discover how and why they utilized different areas of their territory and at which times of the day they were most likely to be active in particular areas. Finding strategic vantage points from which to observe the family without bothering it was essential to ensure the well being of the animals, and also allowed me to witness natural behaviours such as nursing, hunting, rest and play. Often considered to be a dangerous pest by people in urban and rural communities alike, I hope that my photographs of these incredibly dedicated, courageous and busy parents caring for their offspring will change a few minds.
