Last winter, 3 red foxes decided to take up residence in my back yard, and I didn’t mind at all. It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had with wildlife.

I live on beautiful Prince Edward Island, Canada, in Charlottetown. Our summer months are renowned worldwide, and people come from all over to celebrate great local food and beaches as far as the eye can see. Our winters, on the other hand, are brutal. Last year we set a new record for snowfall – we accumulated just under 550 centimeters (just over 215 inches) of snow.

Urban foxes are common in Charlottetown, and luckily for me, I had three to photograph all winter long. They would show up in the morning, jump on top of the garden sheds in my backyard and sleep on them. All day. When the sun started to set, they would leave again, off to hunt in the night. As a way to charge them rent, I would go outside with them for about an hour every other day and take their pictures.
