Fantastic Mr. Fox

A red fox meanders through dunes along the New Jersey shore in this picture by Your Shot member Mitch Adolph. “When it got to the top of this dune, I got down on my knees to get a lower point of view and bring the cloudy sky into the background,” he writes. “As the fox looked back, I got this shot."
