Fox Cubs 2017

Basically, I’m grinning ear to ear. I’ve just been in the garden and expected to see the large male adult fox who has been a constant visitor to the garden. To my utter delight I instead was met by a tiny little fox cub! It’s clearly only just beginning to explore away from its den. So cute and so small! I managed a few quick photos before it retreated to the cover at the back of the garden.

First sighting of a fox cub in 2017. It’s tiny and probably not more than about 6 weeks old.

Hiding behind a pile of food!

That’s a big mouthful, little fella!

This is who I had been expecting to see. The adult male fox gathering food last night

Many more hours watching ahead of me in the coming weeks. Has quite made my Easter!

Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM lens.
