Fox Cubs 2019 edition

Well, Wolfy has finally shown up with some of her cubs. So far the night camera has spotted three fox cubs, though I’ve only seen two of them when I’ve been out watching with the camera. There may be more. It’s very difficult to tell at this stage as their visits are intermittent and quite brief. I’m also being fairly cautious with the camera so as not to spook them. At this age they don’t really know I’m there, but sudden noise or movement will have them running for cover. So these are grabbed shots, but some of them are quite cute. Fox cubs are always cute, so it’s difficult to go wrong!

Here’s a handful of the early shots, taken over a couple of nights, to enjoy

    They are quite handsome. I hesitate to get all gushy and say they are adorable, but well . . .

      It’s perfectly ok to get all gushy over fox cubs!
