This fluffy little girl is the last one left in the area of a family of 7 kits born in the local den. Their Dad was hit by a car in July; thankfully they were well looked after by their rather shy mother. The rest of the kits dispersed during July and August, leaving just two hanging around home, a male and a female. Sadly, 2 weeks ago, the young male was also hit by a car and killed, leaving this young female alone. I sure hope she makes it OK; I think she will, she's a bit more cautious and timid than her brother was.

Good images, & I'm sorry to see that.
We have a feral cat that lives in the neighborhood. Last week I saw her cross the road. First she stood in a ditch, looked both ways, & crouched down until two cars went by. Then she looked both ways, & calmly walked across the road. I wonder where she learned that from.

Thanks much Frank. All the back roads here including mine are dirt roads, and the locals tend to speed pretty fast. My cat does what you said too, I just hope she keeps alert for the local yokels. Unfortunately the foxes, like dogs, are a lot less alert to such dangers.

Thats just sucks Ian, It's funny some learn about the car's and some just don't. I hate that he was run down. I have know a few that lived right on dirt roads and as you say people just speed on by. Cars kill more animals than predator's I think

Yeah Jeff it does suck. I really liked that little guy. I hope the little girl can survive and find a mate OK. Here's the male helping me line up a chip onto the green. (Actually he's waiting for me to chip so he can run out and steal my ball). This was a couple of weeks before he was hit.

I am very sorry to hear the young male was killed. I do hope the female survives. I do love the photos of her, and her brother before he was killed.

I knew he was around Jason, but I didn't realize he had snuck right up behind me. He did that often. I wonder how many golf balls he has stashed at various places around the golf course!

What a shame that another fox was lost. But on the flip side, you sure captured some beautiful shots of him while he was here. That last shot is quite amazing!

Thanks very much Sandy. Yes it was sad when he was killed because everybody really liked him. Unless he stole their golf ball, that is. There has been a fox family raised on this property for the last four or five years in a row, so we can only hope that one of the babies or last year's mom carries on the tradition.
