Family Foxes

Your Shot photographer Shane Kalyn has been following the mother fox (left) for years. "That trust we have built over the years has allowed the distance between us to shrink," she says, "and now it's common for her to bring herself and her kits very close allowing me the ability to capture these beautiful interactions she has with her offspring." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram. Follow us on Instagram at @natgeoyourshot or visit us at for the latest submissions and news about the community.
