I haven’t posted anything new in a couple of weeks, partly because I needed a break, and partly because my local critters have been uncooperative.
We had our first Spring snow storm Friday, and I made it out early to the fox hole Saturday morning so I could get foxes with a clean, snowy background. What I got was clean, snowy backgrounds, but no foxes (you’d think they’d check my Facebook status to know when I’m visiting, but that doesn’t seem to be the case).
This morning was much more productive. Not as cold, and some better light. this is the new alpha male, who made a couple of appearances this morning on his rounds seeking breakfast.
He’s the mate of the little female fox Scarface. She’s been pregnant and it’s right around the time for her to give birth to a litter of kits, so she may not make an appearance for a while since she’s likely nursing. The only time foxes share food is when the female is nursing, so he’s likely been out looking for food to bring home.
Maybe this year I can find kits!
