Estonian photographer's picture National Geographic's photo of the day ({{commentsTotal}})

National Geographic chose a picture of a fox kit by Estonia nature photographer Kalmer Lehepuu as its photo of the day for Saturday, September 19.

Lehepuu had waited for the kits to grow big enough to start leaving the den, and it was on one beautiful evening, he writes, that the mother went to get food and left the kits on their own, letting him sneak closer to observe them.

Lehepuu's photo was submitted to the competition through Your Shot, National Geographic's storytelling community where members can take part in photo assignments, get expert feedback, and be published.
