This may be the father fox. I thought it was the mother when I took it, but this fox has darker 'tips' than the one I always see feeding the babies. Yesterday we had 2 adult foxes watching the babies and hunting all over the yard, and I'd read that the father helps provide food for the babies and also for the mother who stays with the kits to keep them safe. Please Fox Family, help yourself to all the mice and moles you can eat! Last night I'd wondered if all the vigorous hunting was because they knew this bad weather was coming,
Sorry that this is from yesterday, bit it is raining heavily here, so I probably won't be able to get a new photo of this fox.
He looks good magnified. SOOC with cropping.
