And More Fox Pictures

Yesterday, Tuesday, was a slow-fox day. She and 3 little ones were out for a short time midmorning. They had a squirrel for breakfast. I obviously didn’t see all the fox activity during the day, because I went out later and found remnants of a fast-food bag. They’d eaten the scraps. Then this morning she had an empty chili can.

She had ? for breakfast

I worked in the garden last night. Buffy didn’t move while I worked. She had high hopes.

The family didn’t come out last night until it was to dark to take pictures. This morning they were out from 8 – 8:45. She appeared to be eating something. It ended up a young one that she was maybe grooming.The most I saw of them at one time was 4. There are 5 in all. They played, they ate, one nursed a little, and there was a lot of pouncing going on. She was always on the watch and trotted off 5 or 6 times.

Whatever breadfast was, it had long bones

The food is always brought in for feeding and then taken away from the den so it won’t attract predators.

Always on alert

Whole lot of playing going on

One winner?

They always appear to have lots of fun

Sure do wish I could pet them

One is nursing

Back toward the barn

  2. Adorable! What fun for you each day! Just learned we have a fox living in our community, I’m on the look-out for him! 🙂

    • Good luck on your fox search. These here are somewhat predictable … and today aren’t out and it’s 9 a.m. These do come our every evening when it’s too dark for pictures.
