Fox Cubs on a Misty Night

A typical spring night. In other words a grey mist shrouded the garden this evening, which even if it doesn’t put off the fox cubs does present some challenges in processing the images. Two of the cubs put in an appearance. They are still being cautious as a group so I’m not sure how many I will get to see. But I’m used to waiting. This is a regular pattern as the bolder cubs venture forth and their more reticent siblings hang back enjoying the security of the adults.
