While much of Bill's attention is on the birds during the spring, fox pups are a favorite as well. They provide entertainment and their own types of challenges.
Bill spent two days watching this den in central South Dakota in 2022. This litter of four was sporadic during the day, but in the final moments before sundown, they came out to play. Just like a human toddler they don't like to sit still, making them tricky to capture in diminishing light. Bill felt a particular connection to this lone fox pup who was more prone to sitting back away from the chaos and take it all in.
