William Wiley got a tip on the location of a red fox den, and he set up a photo blind but had no luck on the first couple visits. On his third visit, the foxes emerged when the light was just right. One kit heard the click of Wiley’s camera and turned to look for the source of the noise, giving him the opportunity to snap this photo.
