Missus Fox

A few weeks back I mentioned to Ayush that I had not seen a fox all winter. The next day a fox visited twice and has done the same many times since. This fox, pictured above is mostly red. A very dark fox is visiting most days as well. I wonder if they are a couple.

You were in the right place at the right time! amazing series.
Care MacADNski: This is at my pond, taken through the kitchen window.
Good catches of your Fox Care, I like the colour version best. I never knew Foxes were like that in your video, so nice !
Care MacADNski: The fox in the video is pretty tame.
Je trouve que les renards sont de très beaux animaux. Jolies photos.
Care MacADNski: They are very plentiful here.

Wonderful images!

Do your foxes couple? [Foxes were introduced into Australia but English Gentlemen who thought they might like to hunt them. Now they are numerous, like a plague. My observations were that they do not form male:female relationships as males are not involved in raising of young...but, I might be wrong about this...]
Care MacADNski: Yes, foxes couple. I had a pair for years that came together.

At my workplace near the horses, I watched a family. The mother cared for the babies but both parents hunted for food for the cubs.
They're such beautiful animals aren't they! That video was great!!
Care MacADNski: I would not encourage petting foxes, feeding them, or keeping them as pets. Lots of people I know do those things though.

Possibly a breeding pair on the hunt for food
Care MacADNski: That is exactly it. My brother has seen the babies from a den near him already so I think this pair has young too.
She's quite the beauty, Care, especially in color!
Care MacADNski: I love seeing them. They are beautiful.
They are beautiful animals. We get them around our way
Care MacADNski: I agree. I love seeing tham and do not feed or encourage them.

I love the colours of the fox and what a wonderful animal it is. Maybe there are some youngster around too (soon)
Care MacADNski: I think they are probably born because my brother has a den on his property and has seen the new babies already.

Ha, isn’t that just how things happen in life.
Care MacADNski: I wondered all winter about them. I am still seeing them too

You are fortunate to see your foxes. We have a nightly visit, but I rarely see him
Care MacADNski: I see them here in the morning as I get up very early but hear them at night as well.
Such beautiful animals, Care........you were blessed with those opportunities for fine shots smile
The video is wonderful smile
Care MacADNski: These are just out the kitchen window and the property does lend itself to wildlife.

Laughing foxes - oh, my grin The dark fox, is that the same colour as the last one in the video?
Care MacADNski: Yes, they are called silver foxes here but I always call them black. They are exactly the same as a red fox. Only the colour is different. The black is an aberration of the red fox.
I can't remember the last time I saw a Fox, it was certainly a long time ago. The colour pictures are my pictures of choice here.
Care MacADNski: A couple of our English SCer's have them near them but your habitat must not be conducive to them.

You are lucky to take such a close picture of the fox, he looks dangerous, I didn't want to meet him.
Care MacADNski: They come right up to the house as I have shown over the years. They bark at the cats but have never attacked one.
We have them locally - I saw one in our back yard just a few weeks ago. City foxes are widespread in the UK.
Care MacADNski: They are in our cities and towns as well.
Beautiful pictures. You are lucky to live in such a beautiful place. My colleague also has foxes that frequent her garden.
I'd like to travel to your country someday.
