Let’s talk foxes

At my last guiding year at Anticosti, I had prepared a blind and a bait so that we could photograph foxes.  In reality, I would deposit pieces of deer meat always at the same place so that foxes would get use to it.  The surrounding lanscape would lend itself to the possibilities of interesting photographic images.  My spouse, Jose Schell, spent an entire month with these foxes so to understand and capture the social behaviors of these canidea.  Animals more solitary that social, the yearlings are often together during the first winter, particularly the young females.  Jose had the chance to capture many disputes between individuals, especially when the bait was less abundant.  Just like females on a deer bait.  Good day.
