We have dubbed 2022 as “The Year of the Fox”. For several years, we never had occasion to see any foxes, and then this year, we’ve been blessed with 4 separate occasions where we observed, at length, two different adult foxes and then 2 separate litters of kits in Ontario, Canada.

Here are a few photos we took earlier this spring of 2022 of a trio of fox kits exploring the surroundings around their den in central Ontario.

Though we were quite distant, the snap of a twig alerted them to our presence.

We had a brief few minutes in the woods with these fox kits before moving on.
