I spotted two of my foxes on this day - I believe this is the mother. They didn't look over until I snapped a shot. The little one ran a little closer to me, then ran off after a few seconds; the adult also came closer, filled my frame and curiously investigated before she followed.
Not much cropping had to be done for this shot, unlike the others. All I need is some good light and I think I could do better, but it's difficult to do so in these woods. I realize though that my younger foxes will soon be off on their own.
The story: I have a family of foxes that live in the woods behind my house. Their dens are on the trail that start in my backyard. I see at least one of the foxes every time I go into the woods and also often see them in my backyard.
