Loosing the Winter Coat Again, this red fox is the same fox I have photographed before. In this photo, she is found honing in on a mole that she caught moments after this picture was taken. You can see she is gangly looking, as she is losing her winter coat. Taken near Fishing Bridge, YNP. Geotagged,Red Fox,Spring,United States,Vulpes vulpes Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
