I've been fortunate to be named the First Prize winner in the U.S. National Wildlife Federation's 2015 Photo Contest, in the "Baby Animals" category! And had another national TV interview this morning on Canada AM. What a thrill, there were amazing entries.

Great shot! You are lucky to have that kind of Wildlife near you. But...aren't you in Canada? And you won the "U.S. National Wildlife Federation's 2015 Photo Contest" Shouldn't it be INTERNATIONAL then? ;)

You should have just sent them a link for your gallery of all your photos of this family and said "Pick the winner" lol

Another thought. DO you have a gallery somewhere of JUST this family? I know I have seen you post quite a few photos of them. This family deserves their own facebook or instagram. I would love to follow it and just see update photos!

Hi Blake, thanks for the kind comments :). Well, it is the U.S. National Wildlife Federation, and it was their 45th annual contest, but they allowed entries from around the world. In fact, 6,765 of them, which made this kind of a special win.

I have just established a new website on Zenfolio where I have some of "the best of the best" of my photos, separated into Eagles, Foxes, and then others. Feel free to have a look. http://ianmurray.zenfo​lio.com/ (external link)
