Another from that session.  Different part of my garden away from the Bluebells.  Cloned out a small bit of grass.  This Fox is clearly used to humans.  Is new to me as was the first time I'd been in the garden with it.   First seen last month after a recent home move. 

Original file has more space, as was my first post.  Matter of taste and choice, sometime we get right and sometimes not.  :D

Hope all well.   Thanks for looking.

I like this one more than your first image of her, Dave, great foxy pose and angle!  She is obviously suckling cubs from her body shape and the distended teat just visible.  She will be much bolder in seeking a tasty meal around her human neighbours and I hope you have many more chances with her!  Lovely image.  :)

Great alert pose and low angle, I also find the differences in appearance interesting compared with Cynthia's fox.

Thank you Axel.  Definitely, the North American foxes for me, look super cool.  Stripped down to bare bones, they share that deep, defining, Foxy look.   :)

Hi Carol.  She's almost finished lactating the cubs judging by her behaviour and the size of the teats which have lost their swollen look.  (that and she is taking meat away.....I caught an image of her with a sausage and other bits in her mouth.... darn... she's unfaithful already...  LOL).

I've not been successful in full integration into our family yet.  (she will often now bunk down in the garden..  Today she yapped/barked because we were not responding to "feed requests"..  I might invite her in tomorrow for a BBQ....   Ok... As long as she doesn't' scent mark in the living room and can agree what nature program to watch, i feel we have an understanding.   :D

That sounds right, Dave - by 8 to 12 weeks they will be pretty much weaned and relying more and more on meat as main feed.  Does she have red or brown sauce on her sausages?  :P   and any David Attenborough viewing is top of the list............. :)

Very interesting image of this type of fox. I really like the perspective as it accentuatesher head and those piercing eyes.
