I've been following foxes for ages (at least that's how it feels ) 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.
