These young red foxes were about 9-10 weeks old and began play-fighting or "sparring" to test their mettle. Photographed in early morning light, processed in PS CS6, and painted with Topaz Impression II. Please click on image to view it full size. Thank you.

Nikon FX, Nikkor 200-400mm, f/4 @ 1/400, ISO 1600, Blind.

What a gem, Ron! The light is so special, and the painting is superb! Just the right amount of detail, yet a very impressionistic piece. The whole ambiance is absolutely charming as well as your usual excellent eye for composition. Top rate!

Ron, beautiful rendition of the playful kits deeply involved in their playful interaction.  The lovely setting with the bits of light hitting the foliage and kits lend a dreamy, idealistic and innocent viewpoint, which I enjoyed very much - has a lovely painterly quality, too - very well done!
