A silly place to hide some food

A short sequence taken yesterday of Pretty, the young vixen. The food in question is a ‘markie’ biscuit. She tends these days to take them away to cache, digging small holes in the borders (or occasionally the middle of the lawn). Last night though she tried some different. She climbed the garden hedge (about 5 feet high) and tried to cache up there.


Thinking about where to hide this treat


Near the top of the hedge, trying not to sink!


Have cached… now scrambling down!

Not the wisest place to hide something… but I doubt any of the other foxes will find it!

Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens.

    Weird, I didn’t get the notification about this post…

    Maybe the magpies will find it 😀

      I’m pretty sure I sent a notification out, but there’s a chance I forgot! The hedge is a bit too dense for the magpies, but we do have lots of them here so you never know.
