young fox cubs playing

These kits were born back by this old studio about a football field from the house.
There parents are very protective of their young..on this particular day that I took these pictures, I did not see any adults around for the 45 minutes I was able to observe them romping and playing.
The next day, was a different story.
So excited to have seen the new litter, I was hoping for a similar show, but when I went back to the same spot, I was met by the dad fox and by the look on his face, I decided against it so I snaped his picture and said "see ya later dad"!
After that I never saw them back there again. It is common for a fox to move its litter if they feel it has been threatened, even by a fox loving fan.
