The den site is located in a suburban neighborhood in Kill Devil Hills, on NC's Outer Banks.
I have watched this den site for several years. This year the pair had six babies, five of which survived to be about 13-14 weeks old, when the parents moved them to another site. (One was hit by a car). I know the adjacent landowner so I have had wonderful access and permission to photograph.
A young red fox kit greets its mother (a cross-fox pattern red fox) shortly after emerging from its den.
