having recently tried to photograph a wild fox mama and her kits, I know how tough this type of shot can be. your timing is perfect giving this shot a comical as well as wild mood.

Better if the group was shifted to the right in the composition. The negative space on the right limits the interest the animals are showing to the other half.

How fabulous is THAT! We're heading up there ourselves in 3 weeks. And yes, I would think I'd died and gone to heaven to capture a wildlife photo like this. Congratulations!

What an amazing capture? In the wild or in a zoo (not that it really matters)? Great eye for spotting this and great skill for capturing it and presenting it so beautifully. Well done.

Awesome capture, and catch light to boot !.

Nicely done.

Great capture! love the eye contact with the one on the right and the one on the left getting its itch fixed. I wonder if a little brightness bump would help and not start to clip anything!?!? 10 Best of Luck. Scott

It's great the way they're all looking in the general direction of the camera.

I wonder if I just erased my comment? Anyway, I really like this. You did an excellent job of arranging your subjects so carefully. :-)

Great photo! im a big fan of wildlife photos. its so difficult to get a photo of these elusive creatures, much more difficult to get more than 1 in a photo. 9 from me
