We have a bird feeder off our back deck and the birds spill a lot of sunflower seeds while feeding. We often have visits from squirrels and turkeys for the seeds. Last summer a mother gray fox also often visited to eat the dropped seed.

1) This was the first day we spotted her, in mid-May.

3) She was still visiting a month later. The male would sometimes visit at night but I was not able to get a photo.

5) Early August, thinner but still very cute.

Through August and September the two kits would also visit, although mostly at night. For a couple of weeks the kits would show up every night for an hour. I think we were the daycare location.

One night I turned on the patio floodlight and was able to get some photos of the kits.

Thank you. It was interesting to see the differences over the summer and fun when the kits showed up. We had a security camera with infrared on the back porch so we could watch them when they came at night.

Very nicely done! I love the shots where she stares right at the lens.

Thank you. I like those also, but it usually was the sign that my attempt at concealment or my latest version of a blind had just failed and she was going to leave.

Thank you. We leave in an area of vacation homes. I think the foxes get used to the buildings and there usually are not people around them.

Very cool! Foxes have become one of my favourite subjects and I have a lead on one that sounds from a friend's description like yours. Fingers crossed!

Thank you. I have enjoyed your red fox photos, I will look forward to seeing both red and gray fox photos from you next year! I am hoping mine return to the this area, I haven't them for the last two months.
