: Taken by naturalist and nature conservator Ralph Ramey at the Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm in Dayton, Ohio, this is a photograph of a red fox (Vulpes vulpes). Red foxes live in North America and thrive in a variety of habitats, both isolated like grasslands and forests, and human-occupied spaces like farms and suburbs.
Naturalist and photographer Ralph Ramey documented plants, animals, insects, and other notable features of the Ohio landscape on his travels throughout Ohio. Ramey (1928 - 2019) was a prolific writer and authored "Fifty Hikes in Ohio: Walks, Hikes, and Backpacking Trips throughout the Buckeye State," often illustrating his books and lectures with his photographs. Ramey spent time working for the Franklin County Park District, the Miami County Park District, and served as Director of the Glen Helen Nature Preserve in Yellow Springs, Ohio. He also worked as the chief of the Division of Natural Areas and Preserves with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, before retiring in 1994. View on Ohio Memory.
