The other day I went in to get my car's brakes replaced. When they gave me the receipt, I didn't need it and asked if there was a recycle bin around. They said there wasn't, but one of the shop guys walked by and mentioned there might be one around the corner so I casually strolled around to the side of the building and happened to spot a momma fox and her 2 cubs playing. She seemed pretty chill, just standing there as her cubs ran around. There was a car that had pulled up to my left and they were also snapping pictures. Her fur was pretty dirty and tattered and I could tell she'd been spending a lot of time roughin' it. In this picture, you can see one cub running off into the grass on the left and the other one to the left of the ladder in the corner, mostly obscured by the layers of fence.
I debated going back to grab my big camera gear, but didn't want to go all the way back to grab it, plus I wanted to put the iPhone through its paces and see how my readily available camera would perform when I couldn't get too too close. It did quite well, all things considered. :)
We were able to follow the foxes around as they ran to some crates next to a little stream nearby. They must be pretty used to people b/c the momma didn't get on alert until we got pretty close.
I also saw a fox walking by last night when cooking dinner here in Golden, CO.
