Desert Fox

I saw a pair of desert fox just after seeing the Indian Wolf on an evening game drive at Little Rann of Kutch.  I came across the desert fox when it was napping - Babu the driver saw the ears - then said there was a second one nearby.  We got a little closer, pausing here and there for photos and not wanting to scare them off.  Eventually one of the desert fox mated pair got up and trotted off in one direction and the other went the opposite way.  They marked territory and explored, and we stayed with one of them for a bit, until I got worried it might feel "followed" and I wanted to make sure not to appear to be chasing it.  These little foxes were so cute!  And surprisingly small as well.
