“Early spring is in the air,” writes Hiroke Inoue, a Your Shot community member who snapped this photo of red foxes racing on a snowy hill in Biei, a town in Hokkaido, Japan. Considered resourceful animals, red foxes can be found around the world and in various habitats. They mate in winter.

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