Fun with foxes at seminary
Last week, after the first day of my week long module, one of the other students pointed out to me a mother fox and two of her babies. The parking lot, which borders on a wooded area, was empty, and the mother seemed quite undisturbed until she saw us watching, and then she made haste. I found out the next day that there were not just 2 kits, but 7. During the course of the week, I saw them peeking out of the shrubs. On the last day, I managed to get a few pictures. I just got an 85mm lens, which while not the typical focal range for wildlife, suited my purposes.
I looked over the edge of the front walkway. He didn't even know I was there.
He realized I was spying on him, so he ran away from me. I stayed far enough behind so I wouldn't scare him. I could actually hear his mother calling him from the shrubs. I think he ignored her.
Once he made up his mind, he just kept on heading down the path toward the parking lot. School was done for the day!
