Back on the mountain, Part 6

A family of gray foxes gave us pictures at several cameras on the mountain.

The fellow cocking his leg above is probably the father, and below he is with his mate. I can't tell them apart. The one in the foreground is rubbing its neck on leaves of catmint.

Here is one of the parents with a pup (I think). Sniffing lips. The youngster looks to be about two thirds adult size.

And here are two pups resting on the same log. The coat has adult colors (washed out by the flash), but it's still a bit fluffy. The short muzzle gives them the puppy look.
