Fox Kits

East Nassau. NY

Not Kittens. Fox Kits! I began documenting barn ruins in Rensselaer County several years ago, collecting the crumbling history of days gone by. Strolling toward yet another abandoned structure, a tiny, fuzzy body tumbled toward me, unaware of my presence. And then another. And another. It was a litter of playful fox kits! The little beasties were pouncing about the old hay bales like rambunctious kittens. Having never seen such a sight, my startled mind took minute to register what they truly were.  
I spent more time watching than photographing, but captured a few stills while the fox kits chewed on hay, tugged each other’s ears, bumbled over beams, and ducked in and out of the shadows.  I captured a bit of sweet  video, too, where you can see how oblivious they were to me. So delighted was I, I went back two days later to see them again — to no avail. The fox kits were no longer there, probably moved by their mama after she sensed my presence. If you like these images, my fox kit photographs are available for purchase.

    Love it! They are so cute! They stumble a little so they must be pretty young.

      That was my thought, too. Their awkwardness was adorable!
