Pagan Eye: Intrepid Fox Cub in my Garden
Every evening over the past few nights I've been watching a family of foxes play in my garden. It has mostly been too dark to take good pictures, but they came out earlier the other day and I managed to get this photo in sunlight.
There is only one cub in the family. He is absolutely full of beans and has cute little black feet and ears. I shared on Facebook a photo taken at twilight earlier in the week, which got more than 100 likes. However, when I tried to name him by tagging the photo, Facebook for some reason decided to name him first - as Intrepid Fox, the name of an old Goth and punk pub in London. Intrepid seems a good fit though, so Intrepid he will remain.
The rest of the family are three adult foxes - probably one of them is an aunt or older sister of the cub. The cub and one of the adults are fine and healthy, but I'm a bit worried about the other two. One has a limp and the other is very mangy with no fur on the rump. Not really sure what I can do though as they are wild animals and I'm not sure it is a good idea to put out food for urban foxes.
On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it - it could be a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event, or just a pretty picture. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.
