the story behind the shot: ÒWhile exploring the Cascade Mountains with fellow photographer Alex Mody, I came across a red fox. Even during the coldest snowstorm, this animal can stay warm by curling up on open ground. Wrapped in his white-tipped tail, this foxÕs cheeky expression made him look as if he had just been rudely awakened from his daytime nap.Ó
