Fox Playtime

This is a short extract of a much longer sequence I took of Pretty (the 15-month old vixen) playing with Wolfie (3-4 months old), yesterday in the late sunshine. They were play-fighting for a long while, part of a young fox’s education.

    Nice photos. Their teeth appear in good order.

    Nice sequence in a very nice light, I must say 🙂

    Thanks all! The pattern of behaviour is still changing, but we seem to be ‘stuck’ with three cubs and Pretty for the moment.
