Lamar Hunt

from The Telegraph


A fox is caught mid-pounce as it prepares to nose-dive into deep snow to catch a mouse. Wildlife photographer Richard Peters captured the adventurous fox while travelling through Lamar Valley in Yellowstone National Park. He explained: 'We watched it walk across the snow, stopping from time to time to listen for mice activity underneath the snow cover. After a good twenty minutes the fox leapt into the air and dived into the snow twice to catch a meal.'
