·         The above photographs are of seven different Red Foxes Vulpes vulpes, all of which have been or are currently regular visitors to the photographer’s garden. They have been photographed over a period of 25 years so the technology used to capture their images has evolved significantly since the earlier pictures were taken. The two dog foxes and vixen in the final three pictures are in the latter category. They even seem to get on well together! They are fascinating animals to observe and they have all had very individual characters.  Foxes are intelligent, sentient, loyal and resourceful animals and they live within a complex social hierarchy communicating by scent, sound and body-language to establish their individual positions within Fox society. They are also very beautiful and particularly resplendent when adorned in their thick winter coats.
