I only saw 2 of the young this morning and began to worry. Then this afternoon, my husband saw all of them out. Oh my!!!
She has 5 young
This one laid out flat on its back and was being groomed

They must really feel safe in your yard. Happy for you! Thanks for sharing your blessing!!!

You’re right, they must feel safe. I hand’t thought of it that way. I can’t imagine it with the Buffy around. Of course Buffy can’t get to them under the barn.

What adorable captures in this and your last posts of the fox family! Thank you so much for sharing them, I smiled from one to the other. I loved seeing all the behavior and action shots. They must feel very safe around your yard, doesn’t that feel good for you!

This has been one of the most fascinating and exciting things I’ve experienced! They get much more active every day. I have no idea how many times a day I look out the window to see if they’re running around. It’s funny. The foxes go under the barn, the rabbits come out.

I don’t think I could tire of these fox pictures. Hope to see more!

I have no idea how many times I check out the window. It’s the most amazing experience! I will keep posting as long as they’re here.
