Red Kits at Play

I’m just back from my first field trip of the year – photographing foxes, mums and kits around their den sites. Here we see a couple of red fox kits wrestling and tumbling just over the entrance to their den. These little guys had been coming out of their den for about ten days or so, but didn’t range much farther than 10 to 15 metres from the opening at present. Throughout May they will grow rapidly and will range a little farther every couple of days as they learn the basic survival skills from their mother. They will eventually disappear in to the surrounding forest to continue their growing and learning alone, by the end of the month or early June.
