Same red fox, the new alpha male, from Christmas morning.
He’s taking a brief nap just outside his den. The temperature is about 12F/-11C, but he seems warm and comfy in his winter coat, snoozing in the snow.
Despite napping, he’s very aware of what’s going on around him. With his eyes closed, his ears would rotate around to pick up tiny sounds, most of which I couldn’t hear. From time to time he’d open his eyes and survey his surroundings, ignoring me for the most part.
Some minor cropping, and the background was cleaned up just a bit.
