Great Basin and Range Province

This time I´ll start with the highlight of our great journey. We had the fortune to locate a Kit-Fox family in the Mojave Desert. We spent four days to photograph those five individuals.

Unfortunetely we were only able to photograph this family in each early morning due the light in the canyon. At the day the sunlight were terrible and in the afternoon there were only strong shades in the narrows.
