Fox Gallery #3
This is the third gallery page, with pictures taken in early to mid June. The cubs are still very shy and tend to run off when they spot us, so the photographs of them here are not great quality. The first two shots of the cub (second row) were taken through a backroom window, with the camera held up to the glass. You can't really see too much, but I've included them anyway. A couple of nights later I got some much better pictures.
The adult fox, on the other hand, now comes right up to the camera lens so most of the close-ups are 'as is', with no zoom. We've also been able to watch some of typical behaviour more closely. There's a series of three shots as the fox spots an egg (you can see its tongue peeking out in anticipation). Foxes cache food, and there are two shots here of the fox pressing some food into one of the flower beds. Foxes use a tapping motion with the nose to cover up the cache (like a woodpecker in slo-mo).
We've seen a total of five foxes in the garden. Two adults, plus three cubs.
