The Fox Family ...

The night had been unusually cool, down right chilly, but the morning sun rose to warm the beginning of the  clear, dry day.  I happen to glance out the window into our back yard and spotted a red fox mom (vixen) and her three pups enjoying a beautiful day, warming themselves in the sun.

We have dense thickets behind Camp Alexander, a natural drainage creek that produces a small swamp before the runoff reaches the Neuse River.  Behind the creek is woods. 

Considering how many people let their dogs run loose in our area, we are surprised that a family of foxes would be so close to us.  We hope they stay around.  They are great mousers!  And they are fun to watch.
