Here Comes the Sun

After days of cold, late autumn rain, the sun appears in Shiretoko National Park in Hokkaido, Japan. “He [seemed] to have eaten no mouse for several days,” writes Your Shot member Hiroki Inoue of this fox, captured as it lifted its head to the rays.

Inoue’s shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
