Portraits of Pretty the Young Fox

Pretty is growing up fast. She’s nearly 23 weeks old (she was born 26th February), and is becoming quite the young fox. She tends to visit late in the afternoon, which suits me fine as the light is always better at the ends of the day. These are a few photos taken this afternoon.

Here she is standing over the stolen soft toy that we found in the garden yesterday.

Turning…

The wound on her rear leg, by the way, is healing up nicely. She’s been running around, jumping down from the garden walls, and I don’t recall more than the slightest limp during the day. You can see how it’s coming along in this shot.

Finally, a close-up portrait of of a very fine young fox indeed.
