This is a photograph of two young foxes that grew up in the hollowed out area of this very large old oak tree that fell during some very high winds a few years before. It was about 30 feet from my back door.
The whole family of gray foxes lived, played and grew up around this tree and the woods behind it.
I was very fortunate to be a part of their life and took many photos of them. I simply loved these foxes and now all foxes. I think foxes are amazing little misunderstood creatures.
. I hope my fox photos will shed some light on the docile nature of foxes in general. Most people think of foxes as nocturnal but this family felt quite comfortable on the 10 acres of land that I lived on and I would see them at all hours of the day.
They were not afraid of me nor I of them
Some people have to really wait and wait to see a fox but all I had to do was look out my window! How lucky was I?
