The Gray Fox Family-July 1, 2011

A couple of the pups. They are so adorable at this age. One looks like he might have a tick near his eye. Hope the parents get it off. They usually do a good job of cleaning them.

Love these faces.

One of the pups was lagging behind while all his family were up on the hill. He headed home and one of his siblings ran to meet him.

The family up on the back hill around 7 pm.

The daddy and mommy were patiently waiting for the pups to play and run around before they headed back into the woods. The poor parents are very tired from watching their kits all day. They'd rather be sleeping during the day. The daddy will still go hunting at night for the family.

The dad and mom

Mommy looks so tired.

Thanks everyone. Yes. I can only take photos from two windows in my apartment but if I stretch my neck I can see the back hill. Ha!
