Happy Leap Day everyone!
I was visiting Churchill, Manitoba in Canada to photograph polar bears when I came across this beautiful red fox hunting in a meadow. I saw him turn his head from side to side as he honed in on the sound of a rodent under the snow. Then he moved into position for a pounce, got low to the ground and wiggled his butt. I tried to anticipate where he would spring, framed the shot, and pushed the shutter. Ta daaa! His hunt was successful. He caught the fat little rodent pictured in this photo below and swallowed the poor little guy in five seconds. (You can read more about the story at halbrindley.com)
