Red Fox kits in Milwaukee County Wisconsin July 9, 2015

I had an opportunity to photograph 3 Red Fox kits in Milwaukee County, that are growing up fast. They were not out of the den long but enough to capture a few cute moments. Bruce joined me for a couple shots of the kits, it was a fun shoot while it lasted. Images were taken on July 9, 2015.
