A Very Well Behaved Couple

The most amazing thing happened last night, just as it was beginning to get dark. We had these two distinguished visitors outside the kitchen window...

Hey, don't look now but I think we're being watched!

Carry on as normal, dear. Perhaps they'll get bored and go away.

No, I think it's the paparazzi. One of them has got a camera.

Oh no! I didn't wash my hair before coming out tonight.

Mrs F was wearing a blue collar with a box attached and had a red tag on her ear. She is obviously a fox of some note! She was far more outgoing than Mr F.

You look beautiful, dear. Just look away.

OK, I've had enough of this. Lets go, darling, before any more of those blasted photographers arrive!

Luckily, Hubby was close at hand with the camera. 
I know Mr & Mrs F have had some bad publicity recently, but this couple were very well behaved! I'm hoping they will bring their little cubs next time.


  1. They do have bad publicity, but it is great to see them all the same.

  2. We have a fox visiting us at the moment - but he has recently got hurt. We noticed a few days ago that his right front leg is dangling. So we've taken to putting food out for him in case he can't forage whilst he is hurt. He is eating the food but keeping a low profile so we can't check to see if he is getting better.

    I like foxes. Craft beggars I know, but they are great.

  3. They are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
