Until yesterday I'd never seen a fox cub when walking around in the countryside. Then I came across a litter with 3 cubs and watched them for a while, but without getting any decent shots as they were always partially obscured by vegetation. An hour or so after leaving the first litter and heading off to a different part of my local reserve I saw an adult fox and then saw this fella next to it. It disappeared round the bend in the track, heading away from me; and the cub then walked towards me, not realising I was there. I shall call him/her Columbus (and assume it's male), as he's so adventurous. I later discovered that he has at least one sibling, who is more cautious. I watched Columbus for 15 minutes before signalling my presence to him.
