Fox in the Yard Last Night

It's been a while since I set up the camera trap to see what the yard fox are up to. My old friends No Neck and Skin Tail seem to have move on, or else these two have slid into their territory for a little feeder poaching. These tws could be sub-adults from a No Neck and Skin Tail litter, but they seem a bit large and mature for that. Hard to tell, I suppose. No matter; both are in splendid shape and in sleek summer coat which shows the incredibly thin frame of a fox which, in winter, is generally hidden under thicker fur. These are, as you might imagine, well fed animals. They are dining on Purina here, having turned up their nose on a bit of left-over Jasmine rice. Ingrates!
