Red fox (Vulpes vulpes) in Gothic
There is a family of Red fox (Vulpes vulpes) residing here in Gothic. There have been observations and photos of them (for example), but I have not yet seen or gotten photos of them yet. One hour ago, as I was leaving the laboratory, I saw two foxes playing in the field behind the Gothic Research Center. I quickly ran back to my cabin to grab my camera. There was only one playing by the time I got there, but I managed to get these photos.
Looking to catch an insect in the air.
I really hope to see them a few more times before I leave. What a beautiful creature!
