Marty’s photo of the day #2617: It’s “Animals A thru Z Month.” Each day in August, I will post an animal I’ve photographed—somewhere in the world—in alphabetical order.
F is for Fox. I photographed this red fox in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Deb and I were canoeing toward the Arctic Ocean when we spotted this fox far in the distance. We watched with binoculars, as she zigzagged across the tundra, hunting for rodents. She was headed our way—getting closer and closer. Didn’t she see us? Soon she was right in front of us. We froze as she loped by, cut across a shallow channel, and disappeared over a hill. At no time did she acknowledge our presence.
