In a little patch of sun early yesterday morning. Saw him through the window and quickly grabbed my camera, not brilliant detail as taken through glass and quite cropped but I was pleased to get a couple of shots before he was off!

Chanced upon this fox eating in a dark corner. Decided to get as close as I could to him, I only had my 50mm lens with me. Also decided to shoot from very low down, to be at his level and include an interesting perspective of the street. I moved slowly and kept small and low. He was watching me but did not run.

 

A slightly dishevelled urban fox near the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. He obviously miscalculated the sunrise time. One woman was there and kept saying "he's not long for this world", as if he were a Dickensian street urchin with a nasty cough. You half expected the fox to return with "Don't you worry about me, I'll be alright guvnor". Normally I would engage with people quite happly but I studiously ignored her as I didn't want to be brought down as I was having a good morning.

I work in a cemetery, and had to creep around the back of the workshop, for this shot.

This little one took advantage of a recently filled watering bucket (They usually drink out of flower vases).

The Northern Quarter area of Manchester is always a good place to pop around with the camera, there's always little details to find if you like that kind of thing.

I literally ran and grabbed the camera to capture my first fox cub, sorry the focus isn't the best I was a little excited!

stealthy footsteps in our frozen garden

 

Hurriedly shot through window glass, not great quality, but I was pleased to capture him, photographically speaking :)

 

I'd love to take some "proper" wildlife action-type shots of the foxes that come into my garden, but for the time being this regular visitor seems to love posing for its portrait instead! (explore April 28 2009 # 449)

Walking along the prom at Babbacombe and my friend spotted this fox on the cliffside.

He's about 5 months old now. :)

The UK is currently experiencing Arctic weather conditions and it is all new to this year's cubs in my garden. (explored dec 10 2010 # 248)

London is rife with urban foxes. There are several who have made out back of our house their patch - at nights you can be kept awake as they tear around screeching at each other - I always think they sound more like crows than anything else.

 

I've spent far too long lying on my belly in the kitchen today trying to get some pictures of the things!

these wee barras have absolutely captured my heart

Take care, girls this epic will fuck you up.

Another shot of the handsome fox taken in my friend's garden last weekend. I think he looks so different here - more vulnerable somehow. I was a bit cross I chopped off his toes but he was moving quite fast and was getting pretty close!

 

Thanks for all the lovely comments and favs on yesterday's tulip shot. Surprised and happy to see it on Explore today :)

11 April 2014. Dead red fox cub, Vulpes vulpes, outside my office window. St Pancras, London, England, UK. Media vita in morte sumus. In the midst of life we are in death.

My fox cubs are certainly growing up now. They still have fun and have a lot to learn. But their behaviours are changing as they become so much more independent of the adults.

Urban foxes. They can be a pest, danger and photo opportunity.

I saw the fox family again today. Unfortunately, it was dusk and I was losing the light; so I managed to take a couple hundred blurry shots, but this one turned out ok!

 

I watched them for a long time, and Mom sat across the street and watched the little ones play. I started shooting them, moving closer and closer and they didn't seem to be afraid of me. I was able to get fairly close to them, then realized I wasn't paying attention to the mom anymore and had this idea that she may sneak up behind me, but she stayed across the street, unconcerned.

was a little worried about getting fox snot on my lens here!

Taken at the weekend in my friend's garden. He has been a regular visitor since he was a cub.

Which one is the pest? The animal or the idiot who threw a shopping trolley into the Botanical Gardens?

 

This cheeky chap was snapped at around midnight on 5th December 2009 at Walthamstow Central tube station in London. As I got of my train I'd seen him dashing down the escalator, and when the workmen shoo-ed him back up again he sat near the top for the moment - enabling me to grab these two pics.

Urban fox waking up: Had a nice sleep the last couple of hours

This little lady was incredibly relaxed, and even fell asleep for a few moments. Cochrane, Alberta.

Every day my tiny garden in the inner London area of Stockwell is visited by a fox family.

 

Hmm... I wonder why my windows are looking a bit dirty these days. :)
