Pics of some hot foxes (no, not THAT kind!)

17 posts in this topic

I spent several hours today at the same nearby fox den I posted pics from on a previous thread.

This time all four kits were out, though they move faster than any athletes I've ever shot and I was only able to get three of them in the frame at once.

Anyway, lots of fun, and it's just pretty hilarious to watch these clowns when mom and dad are away and they want to play.

I'm playing with a new Web processing regimen, so if something seems too saturated or too washed out or too sharp or not sharp enough, bear with me.

Great series Steve, logging in, what's up there and stretch are my favorites. I know you didn't ask but the colors, saturation and sharpness are looking good on my calibrated laptop.

Great captures Steve!....I have a co-worker here in Hibbing that lives in Ely.....He mentioned that he knew where a fox den was not to far from Ely(couple weeks ago and easy to get to) .....he told me the whereabouts of it!...bet it's the same one grin(he knew I liked photography and figured he'd give me a "heads up" ) ....with the gas prices so high I think I'll pass on the thought ....Steve's covering that fox den with such great quality, respect, and dignity with his photos....

Steve,

I love them all. Did anybody else notice the wood tick the size of a nickle in the right ear in the first image. Also didn't know that they got that dark of a coat or is this a defense colorization when there young?

Steve these are great, Speaking of insects I think I see a fly above the head of the pup on the left in the stretch photo, just shows the detail that you have captured.

Also enjoyed the dogs - those bird dogs love to play.

Steve I really think that they are all great but the looks on 1 & 3 make them my picks.

Thanks everybody! They are fun to watch, no doubt, especially when two or three or all four come out and start wrestling. They move so fast it reminds me of shooting sports.

Meat-Run, I think this is pretty typical fox pup coloration, but they will change into adult pelt by late summer. The parent I've seen and photographed looks like a cross phase, with a lot of darks and grays in the coat, and it's always a bit of a tossup whether pups will grow into typical red adult pelt, the silver fox pelt (much rarer) or some form of cross pelt.

    •   Really, how deep?  Head scratch?    Oh, I think I'm smelling river.

    • that worked today    friend was throwing jerk bait and 4 nice eyes slammed it. funny!   
    • Cooler than normal temperatures, clouds and rain dominated the last week and slowed down the spring progression, including bird migrations and fish spawning. However, a warm-up in the next couple of weeks could change that quickly.River systems across the entire state are running very high, and while the Memorial Day weekend has traditionally been a popular paddling weekend, recreational safety specialists are cautioning that only experienced and properly outfitted paddlers should be on rivers when they are running this high. The Lower Wisconsin River set a flow rate record this week of 42,000 cubic feet per second at Muscoda and there are no sandbars available for camping. The river is running fast and deep, with some boat launches under water.Fewer anglers were out this week due to the rain and cooler weather and those that were reported mixed success. Along Green Bay one hot spot has been out of the mouth of the Pensaukee River where anglers have been catching limits of walleye. White bass anglers had a great deal of success, with some harvesting more than 20 fish from a few hours of fishing. .
    • I believe they use the same blades so I wouldn't expect much of a difference.   
    • So what is the difference between the Lazer Synthetic and just a plain ole Lazer hand auger when it comes to cutting ice with a hand drill?  Lazer Synthetic is lighter but does it cut any better?

    • My family is going to be headed to Birch Lake near Babbitt, MN in late June for a week on a houseboat.  This trip is a graduation present for our oldest and I am hoping to make it a week to remember.   I would appreciate any advice ranging from fishing locations, bait, suggested lures, and even sites to see on the lake.  I have done a lot of searching on Google with the hope of finding someone who maybe spent a week on a houseboat on Birch but not a lot of luck.  I have about a month to prepare for the trip so I greatly appreciate everyone input.   Thanks,  
    •     I have had good luck with the "My Plate" app.... It is annoying enough to keep you honest, but simple enough to use.
    •   Yeah well once you fire that bad boy up and show her how it works, she will get impressed pretty quick!
