Fox kit baby and Mom
I'm Just Going to Ignore You

One way that wild animals are fascinating is when they display characteristics similar to humans, and that make them more relatable. When I look at this image, I can easily see myself and my mother, or any other mother/daughter. Where the daughter is trying to get the mom’s attention, and after a long day of working and getting food ready, and tending to the children, she’s had enough, and just needs to ignore them for a minute, and have some “mommy time”.

 

Even though this image captures the fox kit being ignored, this was a very loving mom, and she tended to the kits very well over the couple days that I watched them.  The squeals of delight the kits made when the mom came back with food was hilarious.
