    That is an amazing photo even without the fauna. If I were the Alaskan Tourist Board I’d borrow that picture for publications, a lot.

    Looks like Denali (The High One) to me. What a wonderful picture. What a wonderful place. God really outdid herself when she made that one.

      She sure did! Fabulous pic and place in every way.

    And then you know what Louise did, after she left her last boyfriend? She found another one just like that, overnight;
    Would you believe, she has two kids at home, different fathers; nobody knows who the dads are…… Her mother just gives up on her…. and the rest of her family….. ( yakkita, yakkita, yakkita, ad nauseaum…….; ; 😉 )

    I wonder what the foxes were *really* doing. Do they fight over territory? Was there blood shed one second after this shot, or do they merely wrestle? (I think some species have “mock” combat because, after all, killing each other is bad for species survival.) Or is this a mating dance? Maybe I’m happier not knowing (if there *was* blood).

      Yes – I was going with ‘play fighting’ because of the happy raised tail on the left-hand one (if their body language is like dogs’) but that’s just my theory.

      Foxes are gorgeous – we used to have one that trotted through our back yard at work (rural Massachusetts).

        I had not thought of play fighting. I assumed they were adults, and adult wild animals typically don’t play anymore, but I don’t know how to tell the age of a fox from a photo, so they could be kits, in which case they could well be playing. Let’s go with that; it’s the most comforting. Also, good point about the tail; I wouldn’t have known to look for that. Thanks, Smartypants.

    Love foxes! Once my husband and I were out on a walk with our wawa and we saw the neighbor girls just laying in their driveway, perfectly still on the concrete. I had a real old-person moment, thinking, “teenagers these days have nothing better to do than that?” Then I saw a red fox on the lawn just a few feet from the girls, looking as happy and relaxed as a puppy. Don’t blame the girls for wanting to stay still and commune with him!
