    Default Desert fox pups LRK diary March-19

    Posting after a very long time.
    Can't excuse though except my laziness.
    Just back from LRK and my concentration was only on one species i.e to cover desert fox.
    This is the time when they give birth and once you find their dens then the name of the game is patience.

    I spent almost three full days sitting and watching them , capturing them , noticing their behavior in presence of mother and in absence of mother.
    Some camera trap images also helped in my details study.
    Here sharing one camera trap image where both pups are standing just outside the den.
    Hope you will like it.
    Canon EOS 7D , Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 IS , 1/3000 , AV mode , f/8 , ISO-1000 , no flash used here.
    Kindly note the setting here for trap was kept , keeping in mind that I must get adequate shutter speed in order to avoid blur image at any given condition.

    Rare sighting of the pups. Loved their alert pose surveying the landscape (or maybe looking for their mother). Would love to know more about your study. It would be nice if you can post more details in the Natural History section. Thanks for sharing.

    Mrudul ji , thnx for your valuable comments.
    This is a early morning capture when mother just left them after I came there.
    This was the only den where mother used to leave pups immediately after I used to arrive ; in spite of keeping good distance from den.
    As suggested I'll put a detail write up in Natural History section soon.

    Lovely image of the fox pups, alert and observant their gaze is transfixed on something. Unfortunate presence of plastic in an otherwise lovely picture. Thanks for sharing.
