Fox kits at play on the prairies

The family of foxes I had the opportunity to photograph last week were an energetic bunch.  Well, the kits were – I didn’t see the adults at any point during the couple of hours I watched them.  Neighbours of the human type indicated that the adult pair raise a brood here every year.

However, the siblings all seemed to smoothly shift between play, tricks, sleep and just watching throughout the time I watched them.  Just as you would expect for young foxes in training.

I was struck by their similarity to my own canines at home – particularly our one year old labradoodle (frenetic, smart and above all else playful) but still decidedly foxy!

  1. Adorable.
    A Fox comes every early spring to give birth to and raise her cubs in our backyard.
    We have seen the cuteness every evening .
