Borran's Nature Photography: Adorable Baby Foxes

in photography •  4 months ago 
Hey everyone!
One day, some time ago, I discovered a fox nest. It was actually quite close to our house.
I have photographed many things that can be found in nature, but this was a totally new experience for me.
I saw three baby foxes in total, I have heard that they normally get 3-5 pups.
Their parents couldn't be seen anywhere, they were probably out hunting for food.
I was hoping to see the kits play but they were mostly very sleepy.
It was wonderful to observe and photograph these lovely animals! But I didn't want to disturb them, so I stayed there only for a short period of time.
Unfortunately, I haven't seen them for a while now. Maybe they have left the nest or moved to another place?
I hope they are okay, but you'll never know.
There are many dangers out there.
I don't think I have more to say, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Red fox, Vulpes vulpes.

Oh my 😍 I would have been very tempted to steal one and take it as a pet!

I was tempted to do it! 😁..But wild animals belong in the wild!

Yes they do, but it’s pretty great to have some right in your back yard. Unless it’s a wolf or a bear eating your domestic animals.

You're absolutely right!..But if a fox is really desperate and hungry, it can also kill your cat! But you know what? Our cat chased a full grown fox away from our back yard about two months ago! :D

Oh man they are adorable... Thank you so much for being responsible and resisting the urge to touch them and hug them (that would probably kill them as their parents would abandon them after that). You were really lucky to have this experience, I have never seen a baby fox in nature.

Yes of course! I would never do that! I was about 30 meters away from them. I just have a great zoom in my camera! :)..I hope you'll see a baby fox someday!
