Fox Family Pictures

The foxes have changed their habits slightly and are making picture-taking more challenging. They come out most mornings for a short time between 7 and 9 a.m. Then they stay close to the barn and in the shade. My picture window faces east, and  window glare can be a problem.

Our weather’s turned hot again and that limits their time out in the afternoon to almost none. My husband has an archery target at the back edge of our property. He usually shoots until it’s too dark to shoot. Since the foxes have been here, he and I both come in early to give them time to come out and play … and us a chance to watch. They didn’t come out last night. The night before they came out when there was just enough light to see them. So, here are pictures from this and yesterday morning.

These are from yesterday (Saturday) morning.

Nursing for breakfast

She stays alert at all times

This is an every morning activity

Play is their middle name

I took the rest of these pictures this morning, starting at 8:15.

Looked like ear cleaning. This was the second she did this to.

Has hold of Mom’s tail

Notice that both feet are off the ground
