With everyone locked down this Spring, wildlife adjusted very quickly and became more visible around neighborhoods. Or….people took the time to look out their windows as they had nowhere to go. Either way, I was one who took more time to see life outside. Which made for a discovery of a Red Fox family near my home.
My wife spotted the Red Fox pups, called kits, first as they emerged from their den back in April.
There was always an adult nearby as the kits explored their new world near the den. This was the male who was always on the lookout for danger when the kits were out.
The Red Foxes have since left their den so I can reveal the real reason I rented the Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 VR len last month.
The kits entertained us for weeks as they played in the woods together or by themselves.
I only got one really good portrait though there was always something in between the lens and the growing kits.
We still see the family members around. They pop out of the woods which is now dense with trees all leafed out and berry bushes before quickly disappearing. I wish them luck as the human world continues to return back to normal which will make their life more dangerous.
