Red Foxes used a den here in the yard this spring for the last month or so. With that being said, you would think that the red fox images would have been endless. That was not the case as we viewed them plenty, but it was always as the sun was setting and very low light. The two adults and 4 kits gave us some of natures finest moments to enjoy. As of now the red foxes and kits have moved on to a different location and have not been viewed for a few days.
Images here were taken at a distance, in a low light situation.
