We're smitten with this photo of a gorgeous red fox cruising along the edge of Council Road in Nome, Alaska. There is so much personality in its pose; such a knowing look in its eye. Is it any wonder these vulpine beauties are associated with sly behavior? This wonderful one seems to have our number. Photographer Don Quintana writes of taking the photo:
"Among my favorite animals to see, other than the Musk Ox, of course, is the Red Fox. I like to think that if I see a fox a day while driving about Nome, then that's a good day. The foxes here are not too shy and seem to just go about their business. They will, of course, acknowledge your presence, but for the most part, if you leave each other alone, your photo opportunities are boundless."
