We Have Fox Pup Pictures!!!! Mr. Snoots Is The Man...


Well, I am excited beyond belief! My attempts to get shots of the fox babies were fruitless. However, Mr. Snoots (My Hero) is taller than I and can lean over the fence with a camera. We attempted several shots yesterday but they were not good and I feared that we wouldn't get a shot at all.


You need to click on the pictures to get the larger version.







Tonight when Mr. Snoots got home, he said he'd go try again and the result was a whopping success! Of course, we were only able to get a picture of one of the pups. When Felicia smells or senses pending danger, she moves fast to get the pups back into the shelter under the old playhouse. So, the other two had already been herded under the little house. These are such amazing creatures, these foxes.



So, I'm feeling almost like a proud Grandmother tonight…

Hey, I braved one of my biggest embarrassments to show you these pictures! The backside of my garden. The old playhouse, under which the foxes keep their *summer home* was old & falling apart when we bought this property 23 years ago. I think we've had it painted twice over the years but the kids would never play in it. Probably a good thing...

You are so lucky to have those babies in your backyard! I'm green right now.

Good job Mr. Snoots!

Do they need a baby quilt?

Tell Mr. Snoots that I said thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I want wildlife that like in my backyard. Just the cutest thing. I would be outside all the time with my camera.

I love foxes. They're so cute and quite mysterious. The mom is sweet with her little white eyebrows and baby looks like a very expensive plush toy. :o)

We have a red one that comes to the edge of our golf course sometimes I always have good luck when I see her.

Congrats Grandma! Is it strange that I was excited to see Felicia's kits?

Staci said...

Yay Mr. Snoots! I have never seen a picture of a baby fox before. (And congratulations, does this make you a "foxy grandma" by the way?) hee hee

Something tells me that I got off easy with groundhogs.

Is that baby on the left in the bottom picture having a stare down with the owl?

Snooty Primadona said...

Actually, that's the mom...

Hey...guess what else Mr. Snoots got? Check out the butterfly to the right of the pix. It's more clear on pix 2, and it looks like the baby's talkin to it!

Snooty Primadona said...

A Butterfly Whisperer? Nah! That's an old piece of garden art that didn't weather well. When hubby cleaned out the garden last winter, he just stuck it there. You can see the wire that holds it trailing off to the right...

Very cool. We have fox here, too, but it's rare to see one. My sister lives in VA so keeps us entertained with her critter photos. Recent one was of a beaver family. Nice catch on these shots!
