Red Fox and Kits

More photos from Camera Trap Spring. These were taken at the edge of the camera flash, and the resolution is not the best.

Here comes a red fox with some sort of prey—a wood rat?—at 3 a.m. on Sunday, May 23.

Two kits are playing near the spring on Monday, May 24, at 4:20 a.m.

It looks as though Mom (?) is ready to be on her way on Thursday, May 27, at about 2:30 a.m., but someone is chasing her and making a play bow.

Excellent shots and a nice little story board there!

Gotta love the Camera Traps!

You struck a little gold mine in those red foxes. Great pics. Could that be a bushy-tailed woodrat?

Thanks! I'll accept your ID on the woodrat. I am guessing that since the kits were there and the adult was bringing in prey that the den must be somewhere fairly close--there are lots of big boulders and rough terrain nearby for concealment.
