First Flakes: Red Fox by Nate-Zeman First Flakes: Red Fox by Nate-Zeman
To Purchase this image as an exclusive limited edition print, please click HERE

The first big winter storm rolls through the Rockies, leaving a blanket of white snow in its path. Winters are vicious in this part of the park. Nestled between the Never Summer Mountains and the Continental Divide, storms usually drop most of their precipitation here, in the Kawuneeche Valley, before moving eastward over the rest of the park. While most animals are heading for lower ground, there are a few holdouts. The red fox is perfectly adapted to harsh winter conditions, and wasted no time getting out in the snow to hunt.

Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) Kawuneeche Valley - Rocky Mountain NP - Colorado

:omg:, such beauty! My mother would be in seventh heaven out there. She loves wildlife, well the wildlife they have in Connecticut that is. She's always feeding the raccoons, squirrels, deer, possums, skunks, coyotes & bobcats, you know the motley crew. According to my brother, she feeds them left over dinner, & they wait by her apple trees to throw it out. (Not all @ the same time of course, because if so, I'd drive up just for the photo op) He says she won't be happy until one of those WILD ANIMALS attacks her. :fear: :no: I hope I don't turn into the crazy squirrel or bird lady too, somewhere down the line. :rofl:
Good Night Luv, Sweet Dreams...:sleep:

I love how there are a few bits of snow on its head. Helps give us a better idea of what it's been doing. Wonderful work!
