24. Fox Reflections: What does the Fox See?

 fox vulpes vulpes red fox water reflections mirror wetFoxes don’t seem to swim an awful lot, but suspiciously often I see them standing along the waterfront.
So the question is….what are they doing there?

Of course they might just be thirsty and by lack of a tap,they use channels, lakes or ditches to satisfy their needs.
And on hot days they might just want to cool their their hot paws

But too often, I find them just standing there, gazing over the water surface or peering into the depths
Which makes me wonder: what does the fox say….eh see?

Could it be a a moment of Zen-like mindfulness, a bit of self-reflection, or is it just purely superficial vanity?

Everyone knows that foxes are very attractive, proud animals, with their gorgeous fur and the most beatiful bushy tail of the entire animal kingdom.
That gracious body, their long slim legs and pretty pointed snout.
Not to mention these hypnotising eyes…

Who could resist this overwhelming beauty..?

So maybe…when no one watches, foxes just take a moment to silently enjoy their own reflections…secretly admiring the fox in the mirror.
Who knows…;)

Or would it just be a distraction maneuver?

What does the Fox see?!

A moment of Zen-like mindfulness, a bit of
self-reflection, or is it just purely superficial vanity?

  1. I love your work on foxes and honestly this article has helped me develop a new insight to my own foxy character. Thank you. But truly I believe when nature is still, the animals are listening, seeking guidance from the world around them. For foxes it may be the stories of the spirits there since they are one of few animals that can pass through the veils. According to legends anyway.
