A Curious Fox

A Curious Fox Baby Fox On a recent visit to the old tree I met two birdwatchers. They told me about the fox family that lived in what is left of an old stone cellar. So on my way back I stopped for a closer look and after a few seconds one of the young foxes spotted me, that is the second photo. On my most recent visit to the old tree I passed the fox earth, and when I looked back a fox appeared behind on the grassy hill next the earth and kept watch on me.

Your first shot is just amazing. And who knew a fox was that cute?!

A fox family that lives in proximity to humans does present rare opportunities for cute photos.

That curiosity may be bad for their health in the long run. Cutem though.

Cute and furry they may be, but a terrible nuisance when they start coming into the urban areas. Fantastic pics Steffe.

Very cute! Well caught Steffe. Not seen one that close in quite a while.

Så heldig du er.
Jeg har aldri sett en rev her. Ei heller noe annet sted i Norge. Men i nord London, så jeg en rev på en parkeringsplass like ved stasjonsbygningen ved Arnos Grove. Først trodde jeg at det var en katt, men de jeg besøkte sa at det var en rev som kom dit ofte.

To me a unique and pretty model!
well seen and done.

Oh well done Steffe, not easy to catch the fox!! I like that he's in his little safe spot peeking out at you.

Wow Steffe vilken lyckoträff! Efter att en längre tid hängt på Flickr har jag glömt bort din hemsida. Jätte kul att bläddra bak och se alla foton!
