I am very fortunate to live where I live. So many photo opportunities. There is a family of closes living very close to the farmstead. I imagine they are related to the ones that have live close for a number of years. I think I read once that the female will return to where she was born to raise her young. For what ever reason, I am so glad they are close. Watching the Kitts play is like having a basket of puppies. These photos were taken with a Browning Trail Camera. It has been set up by the den long before the Kitts arrived. They just think it is part of the scenery. There are five Kitts in total. They don’t seem to play outside together all the time. This may be a survival mode. I read (yes I do a lot of reading) that out of six only two or three will live to September. Yes Mother Nature can be cruel. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I do.
I am truly grateful to be living where I live. There are so many photography opportunities. At the present there is a family of foxes living close by again. I am able to have a trail camera close to them and am getting some amazing photos. The kits have just begun to come out of the den. Below are a few for now. Look forward to more!

Here are some of my April posts on Instagram. Check back often as I have more lined up to post. Follow me on Instagram and see them there first. A like is always appreciated.
For several years, we have had a Red Fox move in under the steel bins across the road from our home. It appears once again we have one in residence. As the Red Fox has a life span of about 5 years, I am assuming the one we have now and maybe last year, is an off spring of the original one we saw. This shots were captured with my Browning Trail camera. Hopefully I will be able to show you some of this years kits.
For the fourth year in a row, we have had a Red Fox make her den underneath one of the steel bins located across from our home. We see her off and on; and she and our dog have a race once in awhile. She always wins. Once before I was able to photography three little ones. This year she only had one and I caught it outside one day. Have a look at the cutie!
This morning when the boys and I went for our walk, there was a fox in the field west of the buildings. The boys didn’t see her so I was able to get photos. She was a long way away and I had to crop these shots to show you. She has made her home under the bins close to us and I’m hoping she will again this year. Two years ago I was able to take some really good shoots of her pups.
