It happens everytime I see a wild animal ... that thrill of the encounter. That moment when you look into each other's eyes and for a moment you feel connected. Some how I think an animal knows when they look into our eyes whether we mean them harm or not. Sounds silly I suppose and yet I have experienced it. Where, like this fox, they go right back to doing what they were doing as if they have made that decision that you are safe. I know they are wild and I only take this theroy so far, but I've experienced it so many times as long as there are not others around to make them nervous. I'm so grateful for these beautiful encounters.
This is a shot of a fox and her kit from another year as I have not seen the fox this year though I have surely tried to find her!
