I went back out at 4am today to see if I could get some decent shots of this Kit fox family.
It paid off.
I brought my chair, camo netting and my gear and sat about 100 ft away or so from their den just before sunrise.
They were up but not near me, however in minutes they came to the den and went about their business. Here are the first few I processed from this morning. These are all HEAVY crops as I only have a 100-400 and 7d.

Last shot I took. I stood up to leave and mom didnt like that. The second step I took was too much for her and she went underground.
