I had just arrived at the home of a fox family when Mom decided it was meal time. It was quite a sight, with not quite enough room at the dinner table.

Hey, Ian!

That's a great image! . Looks like those pups are at just the right age for some really great behavioral images.

It's good to see you post ..... seems that I haven't seen you post here as much as you used to in past years. . Glad you're still hanging around the forum.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Hi Tom, nice to hear from you. Thanks for the comment. Yes I've been drifting away, and more active on my Facebook page than here. The main reason is the lack of interaction here since the forum implemented the "like" clickability. I liked the comments and verbal interaction before, but folks seem to prefer the easy click now rather than that. I still browse and contribute here from time to time, as I like the forum overall and I've been with it for many years, so it still seems like home.

Great shots. Funny 1 pup climbing over mum, unlikely to increase chance of a meal.

Beautiful images.
What a wonderful sight. A wow moment.

Surely those overgrown babies should be weaned by now?

First off, great shot, Ian; it seems like every year you are blessed with a plethora of foxes. We've got them here too, but I rarely see them.

Second, I couldn't agree with you more on "likes' vs. actual comments. I am posting way less than I used to for the same reason. I very much have enjoyed developing friendships over time with folks like you, Captain Bob, Rog aka Ardeekay, and others, but that just doesn't happen anymore. 'Likes' are too easy. It's like walking down a sidewalk and nodding at someone you pass rather than stopping to have a conversation. Call me old-fashioned, but I'm a'gin it.

Thanks for the comments Al. I'm so happy the foxes have returned to their original den from years ago, they've been away for a year or two so I'm hoping for the best. Funny, you mention the same names I enjoy carousing a bit with :) ....and yourself also.

LOL yea you're probably right, although she was so very patient with them all. When she had enough though she just shrugged them off and walked away.

Thanks Richard, it was a great moment or two for sure, timing is everything! They kits are around 8 weeks old so they are likely partially weaned already, but it was Mom who offered and they who accepted the offer, so she's still willing!

There was no more seating in the dining room, so that pup decided to order a drink in the bar.

That's an interesting take on the likes. . But you say you are active on Facebook, and FB is the king of likes! . I mean, they started the whole thing, didn't they? . If likes don't inhibit commenting on Facebook, then there is no reason why they would inhibit commenting here.

I agree with you both about the lack of conversation here. . I don't know how much the "likes" have to do with it, because most of my involvement here is in the discussion areas, not the photo sharing areas, and I don't think that "likes" affect discussions nearly as much as they do shared photos.

I try to get a lot of conversations started, or rekindled, and very few folks are interested in adding to the conversation. . Unless it's about gear (but why do people want to talk about that so much, anyway?)

Anyway, I guess we can choose to either be part of the problem or part of the solution. . My thinking is, "since no one else seems to be commenting much, I'll have to do even more of it to get things going and keep things going."

In short, I really miss the "old crowd" that used to spend a lot of time posting here, and wish we could get them all to come back and have things the way they used to be.

I'm of similar thoughts.
There was a comment a while back on this in one of the threads and that ran counter to 'commenting'.
Some just wanted to see the posted photos, others enjoyed the comments too.

Interaction is good IMO. I 'like' peoples response back to my response mainly to acknowledge I've read it,as I did with your response to my comment on weaning.
Waffle ended now  :p

Not quite. Keep posting. I too enjoyed your photos.
