The fox family

You all know how much I love foxes, imagine how thrilled I was to see so many of them during my holiday last week. And the best news is that there is a fox den somewhere not far from my house, I haven't found it yet but my mom saw two fox kits one evening and I saw one the next morning. They are so incredibly cute! Quite small still.

So this is the first fox I met one evening hunting for food :)

And this is the mom. She was so occupied with the hunt and when she appeared to the field she already had about 4 mice in her mouth :D But then dropped them all and caught another one. And then quickly hurried to her kiddies with 5 mice in her mouth! :)

This is a closeup of the mice! :D Against the light so not good quality. And would you look at those tits! HAHAHA

Very early next morning I went to look for little foxes and I managed to find their trail. It was another sunny day but the trail was in a dark forest, not good conditions for photography. I was already giving up of finding the den when suddenly I saw one fluffy little fellow hopping towards me on that very trail! :D He saw me just as I saw him which was a pity. We stared at each other for 10 seconds and then he turned and ran back the way he came. It was my first encounter with a fox kit and I knew that they were cute but I didn't think they could be this cute! :D Looking forward to meeting them again!

This is another handsome fellow, I think this could be the dad but I'm not 100% sure. He was a bit lazy :) Sat in the middle of the field for a long time and was probably waiting for the mice to jump into his mouth ;)

Last weekends trip with hubby

Trips that are not planned are the greatest! :D I came up with this idea to visit the north east side of Estonia the day before. We started driving on Saturday morning and a few hours later arrived at a place which is known as the most lake filled area in Estonia :) You get the point ;) We ended up hiking for 3 hours and walked about 12km (7,5miles). The weather was nice, a bit windy though.

This is a tiny plant (less than half an inch tall) that grows only in wet areas and eats flies and mosquitos. You can see the mosquito in the next pic ;)

Light was not good for photography but took the pics anyway to show you where we went ;)

That's a man made hill in the background, we don't have big hills or mountains in Estonia.
We stayed the night at a beautiful manor. The room was lovely and we enjoyed our dinner at the restaurant! :)

There were lots and lots of birds in the park :) This is a fieldfare.

The view from our room! I wish I could wake up to this every day! :D

Our tasty dinner...

...and dessert ;)

A very smart and old cat! She came to the manor some 5 years ago and never left. I don't blame her, they feed and look after her and she gets to live like a queen sleeping all day at the comfy chairs :D She didn't even open her eyes when I petted her haha
The manor is located on top of the highest cliff around here, sadly we didn't see the cliff this time because on that area the trees have taken over...

And to end the story - not the manor cat but this cat had beautiful eyes :)

Thanks for reading! :)
