Jeff, you'll understand this best I think. This young male fox is still very much a wild animal, but he has established his home territory, patrols it regularly, and accepts me being there taking his picture fairly regularly. It brings me peace and joy, having the trust of such an animal. You can see the trust and peace too in his eyes. Call me crazy if you wish!
1. On my arrival, checking out who's there.

2. He recognized me and came trotting over.

3. He's always very curious about the camera.

4. He caught a mouse and hid it for sometime later.

5. Born just in late April of this year, his is already a self confident young adult, comfortable in his surroundings.

6. His sister was approaching, and I think this was just a warning to not try to grab the mouse he hid.

7. Just checking out a sound he heard over to his left. Maybe dinner calling?

Indeed I do,.. I have a rapport with many foxes now. I know you would be hooked after you found and shot them the first time. They can become very willing to ignore the fact your there sometimes. He excepted you as a kit weeks old and now as an adult,..him I mean lol. You will have many a time together and it will evolve over time. I believe I told you .. " your gona love it " and you are..!!

Nice catch on the mouse.. Maybe one day we will put on a show of a thousand fox images,.. I know I'm more than there

Haha Blake, yes sometimes he does plot. Like when he's going to run out onto the fairway and grab my golf ball. He got 4 my last round played.

Thank you. I probably spend too much time visiting, and am backing off just a bit. I do want them to grow up wild and be like foxes should.

Ha, thanks Jason. Of course I talk to them! They know me and know my truck already quite well, and I believe they recognize my voice too.
