A good mother must provide for her babies. This was maybe 2 kms away from the den I followed last summer. She was crossing a back road, and when I stopped and rolled down my window and spoke to her, I truly think she recognized me from last year. We had a moment :) She even waited while I removed the 2x extender from my camera, and she was still almost too close.

Thanks much Dan, it was indeed cool. What was more cool was her reaction to me. When I stopped nd rolled down my window, she stopped dead in her tracks and looked me right in the eye, and stood there for a good 2-3 minutes looking at me. I am certain she remembered me from last summer.

Ha, thanks for the vote of confidence Blake. If I'd been on the sunny side of her instead of looking into the sun these might have some chance. As is, the shadows are a problem, despite my pp efforts.

Thanks very much.

I agree BUT it's not always the quality of the photos as much as it is of the MOMENT you captured. I've seen a ton of fox photos but never this.

I am willing to bet that not every photo these places publish is the favorite of the photographer who submitted it
