Default Red Fox

Kevin and I were photographing birds at a bog in Minnesota when a Red Fox started approaching us with a bird in its mouth. The fox was determined to get by us. We suspect it was on a mission to get food to its babies.

This is what I call a one-in-ten thousand photo. Most of us will never get to take a shot like this. You are very fortunate, and the photo is priceless!

From the looks on that eye, it appears like this Kestrel (or another) put up quite a fight! If this "sly fox" has a predilection for catching hawks by using a dead mouse or small bird as bait (it wouldn't surprise me in the least), it is living dangerously. Great opportunity, great shot!
