I encountered this red fox pup along a remote stretch of highway yesterday. It briefly posed in the evening light. It appears to be be what we refer to as a 'cross' colour phase.

Good grab Joe - were you sitting there waiting or an accidental catch?

The fox was sitting on the shoulder of the road and when I stopped it trotted up to the side of the car along with one of its siblings. I took a couple of photos with the wide angle and then changed to the telephoto for the head shots. The lighting was marginal most of the time as the foxes were in shadows and I was shooting at a slow shutter speed and low iso (a lot of blurred shots) except when the setting sun peeked through briefly and lit the face of this one kit.

Now that's a keeper! You did very well considering the lighting conditions. Don't you just love it when you get a shot like this.
