Furry Friday – Fabulous Fox Fotos

Posted by Dan Arndt

Of all the wild canines, one of the most enigmatic and almost universally loved, is the beautiful Red Fox. Ranging across almost the entire Northern Hemisphere and containing nearly 50 subspecies, the Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) is a species that many photographers are always pleased to see. Red Fox populations rise and fall in cycles, opposite the Coyote population cycles, but a healthy Red Fox population is a sign of a relatively healthy ecosystem, and recently it’s even been shown that a healthy Red Fox population helps keep lyme disease in check. So without further ado, enjoy some of these fox photos! Most of these photos were taken in and around Calgary, but some were taken a bit further afield.
