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.
