Vixen

I've been feeding this fox and her cub on and off for a while now but I've noticed that since the temperature has dropped the mother has been out looking for food during the day and early evening (prior to the change in temperature I normally wouldn't see her till late evening). I took this picture about 8am when she came through the hedge and into my garden and stared straight at me for a few seconds before going into the next garden. I think it's time to put out some extra rations :)

 

This picture now features in an article by the BBC about foxes: www.bbc.com/earth/story/20150109-love-calls-of-courting-f...
