It was funny, I went to visit my little female fox, and didn't see her around. So I sat there taking pics of robins on the grass pulling worms; still no fox, so away I started to drive. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw her come running toward me. I stopped and went back and talked with her for a bit, I think she was lonely. And yes, that is snow flurries in the first shot.

I wonder where her momma is and whether she found another mate? Her brother hasn't come back either?

I don't know where her Momma is, she disappeared as soon as the kits could hunt and feed themselves last summer. This young lady herself is a mother, she appears to be nursing. Her brother, like her father, was killed by a car.

That's sad that her brother was killed also.

Anyway, hope her babies love you as much as she does. Waiting patiently for your updates with photos of the little ones.

Thanks Paul, it's a good feeling to have the trust of a wild animal.

LOL not quite Bob, but you can see the reflection of my truck in her eyes. Thanks for commenting.

Foxes are amazing animals. I like the symbiotic connection they can sometimes develop with humans.

In your case, Wallace, how did your interaction with this lovely little "fox" (literally) come about?

It's really a long story. A friend and neighbor told me about the foxes that have been living on his property for several years. I started following them closely about three years ago. I developed a good relationship with them. Unfortunately the father fox was hit by a car last year. This female is the last one on the property from last year's litter, and she has now assumed responsibility for raising the next family. Hoping to see them too whenever they emerge from what we think is a new den.
