Little Friendly Mom

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 10 October 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

We have had a family of foxes visiting our yard for water and a snack for over a year. We called this one Friendly Mom because she was not afraid of us, and in fact seemed to welcome our company as long as we were quite and did not get too close. This photo was taken when she was nursing her babies (kits) this spring. They are grown and thriving. She disappeared in early Sept. and we fear that a coyote got her.

Little Mom - we miss you.

I really like this beautiful, rim-lit shot of the fox. You also keep good visibility into the darker side of the exposure. Very well done!

What a beauty she is. And we'll hope that the coyotes didn't prevail. Maybe she just "took a break" for a while.

I like your so appreciative and respectful fox portraits. This is a nice one. If she is back in Fox heaven, may she return again soon. :D
