I had just come upon the four fox kits, unexpectedly, and taken some pictures of them when Mom came around the corner of the building. She stood here for the longest moment perusing the situation. Although she was used to seeing me, she wasn't used to me seeing her babies. As she turned to go behind the building, indicating to her kits it was time to hide, I quickly left the scene.

    Wonderful. Just keep spying and one day she will come to trust you as one of the pack.

    You did the right thing, Heather as mother's in wildlife are very protective of their babies....If you had followed them to where they were hiding it might have been a different story. You got a great picture of the fox and this is perfect for the theme.
