Award-winning photograph captures affectionate display.
“My friend/neighbor, who lives a block away from my house in Plymouth, notified me on a very cold day that she had two red foxes in her backyard. I raced over to her house with my camera and, since it was such a cold day, she had me come inside to one of her upstairs bedrooms that overlooks her backyard … Believe it or not, capturing a good photo of a fox or a fox pair has been on my bucket list for a few years. I have only seen a fox two other times in the wild before, but they were both too far away to get a decent photo. I was in heaven seeing this fox couple, especially from the comfort of my friend’s home.” —Jan Speak
