I thought we had one fox living in the den under our laneway. Nope. Apparently we have at least three!
I took these with my iPhone 5S pressed against the eyepiece of my new Celestron spotting scope! Pretty amazing, really. And taken through a filthy window, no less. I have an adaptor for the scope, for my Nikon SLR, but I have not yet mastered focusing with that. So far, the iPhone pics are better.
They were all enjoying the snowy winter day. A couple of them were snoozing in the snow, on and off, for a good four hours.
Beautiful winter coats!
And you can see in the next pic where exactly the foxes live...
The speck that red arrow is pointing to is a fox. My spotting scope does quite the zoom job!
And here is hastily-put-together video for you, once again using the iPhone technique.
Aren't they gorgeous? Last spring they had EIGHT kits! I think some of these guys must be last year's kits. I will try to master the digiscope photography before the next litter emerges.
It's very hard to drag myself away from scenes like these. :)
