Gray Fox Kits are getting bigger - here's a photo by coastal photographer Siegfried Matull
Two young Gray Fox kits are growing up on the Sonoma Coast. Siegfried Matull captured a photo of the Foxes playing on a Redwood stump at his Sea Ranch home. You can see the beautiful orange-red highlights of the Foxes. In the right light they also have a blue cast to their fur - whoever named them "gray" must have been color-blind! Gray Foxes are also called Tree Foxes for their ability to climb most anything. They are fun to watch and to photograph. Thanks to Siegfried for allowing me to share his photo here.
