Swimming Fox by thrumyeye Swimming Fox by thrumyeye
I've been following foxes for ages (at least that's how it feels :P) and although I know they can and do swim I never witnessed it.
Up until last spring when a fox suddenly crossed a small water....
And now I can tell from my very own experience that they are actually pretty good swimmers indeed;)

Beautiful shot! Foxes are really interesting to me as they are really intelligent, beautiful and very capable hunters. I love seeing foxes in the countryside, away from houses and farms; this captures their ability to adapt to an environment. I know that there have ben records of foxes swimming to catch ducks - some have been more successful as they have camoflagued themselves using weeds or floating branches to get close enough to the ducks to catch one.
