A red fox studies the strange human photographer crouching beside a car door near Polychrome Pass. It seemed like it was its first encounter with a human. That’s the beauty of Denali. Wildlife, in most cases, have no idea what a person is and do not perceive a threat. The red fox stalks much like a cat. It gets as close as it can and then pounces. Much like cats they also have retractable claws and vertical pupils.
