16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Fox Family vs. Jackal Family

Two bat-eared foxes face down five curious black-backed jackals. These jackals are venturing away from their den for the first time, and they have discovered the foxes' den. Inside rests one tiny kit. The jackals repeatedly try to get close to the den, and the foxes chase them away.
