Arabian Red Foxes - Dhahran Hills

I saw two Arabian Red Foxes for the first time in several weeks and managed to get close and photograph them. The last few sightings I have had, have been very brief including once of an adult and three small cubs. I almost always see the animals as it is getting dark so the light is never the best but the photos show then animals quite well especially their well-adapted large ears. At this time of year the animals are never at their best and look a bit worn and tiered, probably after having to bring up a family earlier in the year. No matter how many times I see the animals and how close I get I always enjoy seeing the foxes and it normally makes a very nce ending to the evenings birding.
