Red Fox families have been making this neighborhood red barn their home since 1905! I made friends with the next door neighbor last year who allows me to shoot from his property for closer images. Red Fox use neighborhoods very frequently in Colorado because of all the Coyotes out in the fields and they feel completely safe surrounded by houses and are not bothered by people at all. I was so happy when mom returned to the den shortly before I made this image and all 6 kits rushed out to nurse.
