Great capture,Kate....did he stay long?

That's a sly fox if I ever saw one - a sleepy sly fox. Look how he sleeps with his ears perked up. He's a handsome fella.

Thanks kindly, Julia! He stayed for around an hour. However, when my neighbours arrived home he decided to take his leave and disappeared up the bund hill 😊

Thanks Paul! He sure was a gorgeous colour! He didn’t seem to fussed that I was watching him from one of our upstairs windows with Eve in tow! Think he posed for the pics at times! ☺️

I have clicked on " like" Kate as the fox round here is always digging up my garden!! I would like it if it would go somewhere else! lol

Thanks Sue..he was obviously catching a few zzzzz’s on the way past!

Thanks Chris! He did look a beauty…even with the sharp teeth on show! 😉

Thanks Rose, I do understand where you’re coming from- lovely to look at but they can do some damage! I’m lucky - fingers crossed - he only pops into our garden to drink from the pond.

I agree, Ange. He is definitely a smashing colour, plus pretty healthy looking too!

Nice pictures of this lovely animal Kate.

Thanks kindly, Klahanie 😊

Lovely photos, nice to see a fox looking so healthy. Sometimes they get mites & scratch themselves raw, which is very sad to see. We have foxes around here but so far no damage, they just leave their ' messages' behind'.

It's lovely to see a fox, they're such a beautiful colour :)

Thanks Josee! Also thank you for the info, I didn’t realise. Bless. Can’t be nice for them.
Have to agree, fortunately no damage to the lawn here either…

Thank you, Hywel. They are such a gorgeous colour aren’t they! 😊

Oh I missed this Kate, he may be sly but he's not shy is he? So good to see him, I hope he's healthy and not tired all the time. Maybe its a vixen and she's having time out from the children..:))

I missed it too,Kate,He /she is lovely,and we all like a bit of a nap at times, and Foxes are no exception :o)

Thanks Janey and Sandra! I’m pleased you both like the blog and pics! It may be a vixen, Janey - having a snooze away from the young ones for a spell!
