To be with nature and to observe wildlife is the kind of peaceful indulgence of a private passion that defines who I am as a being. This blog is therefore dedicated to all the beings that allow me to record their lives through photography.
There is a family of Red fox (Vulpes vulpes) residing here in Gothic. There have been observations and photos of them (for example), but I have not yet seen or gotten photos of them yet. One hour ago, as I was leaving the laboratory, I saw two foxes playing in the field behind the Gothic Research Center. I quickly ran back to my cabin to grab my camera. There was only one playing by the time I got there, but I managed to get these photos.
Looking to catch an insect in the air.
I really hope to see them a few more times before I leave. What a beautiful creature!
My work here in Colorado is coming to an end as my plants are producing nutlets and ready to be collected. Technically, we will leave this coming Saturday, but we may stay for an extra couple of days to tidy up all the loose ends.
Each Mertensia flower has four ovules and thus can produce up to four nutlets per flower.
