Late this winter a Mama and Daddy fox moved in under our shed in the backyard. They only had 1 kit though. We named him Junior.

What an awesome opportunity to watch nature unfold up close and personal. We watched as Mama nursed Junior and eventually taught him to hunt on his own.

The pictures are somewhat fuzzy has I took them thru the window and screen. I did not want to go outside and disturb them. We let Junior grow big and strong till he could hunt on his own. Then, sad to say, we boarded up the holes under the shed. It's time for Junior and his family to move on. On a happy note, we see them often though (and our squirrel population is certainly down).
