14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A red fox walks along the Alaskan Highway just inside the Alaskan/Canadian Border near Gakona, AK.

This red fox, seen with his newly-gained summer coat, was spotted on the side of the road in Gakona, AK with three different animals visible in her mouth. When I first spotted her, she had just killed the rabbit, which was still whimpering in it's last moments. She trotted along the road, and for about 10 minutes I was slowly following her as she walked along the highway.
