    A fine-looking little chap! He’s growing fast, too.
    I love how you’ve caught the father’s eyes in the first picture!

      I love getting the distant eye-shine in these shots. I’ve no way of planning it. They just light up when the flash fires and I think ‘oh, another fox is lurking’.

    Adorable, especially on photo #2 🙂

    Darko, thanks! I’m getting a lot more of these so it’s getting to be difficult to pick which ones to use.
