Thank you John for the like and comments on Ron Howard. He hasn't really changed that much over the years. A bit fatter in the face, like most of us as old age gallops up. lol

Thanks John for you comment on my kite flying  I think kites still have a place in the world because the don't run flat and a kid with flat batteries is a miserable thing.  here's a link  to some pictures that I took last year of kites in action a couple on miles from me , now if I was fitter I'd throw away my electronic  toys and join them

Hello my friend, thanks so much for your beautiful comment and the like too on my "Victorian Lady" pastel. I enjoyed doing that one. Something a little different from all my animal drawings. I appreciate it always.

Thanks John.  it does sound strange with the foxes and  cats,  there are certain  cats I always see with foxes . My old cat todd would often sit on the shed with a couple of foxes.  I've seen some massive dogs 9 or 10 times the size of a cat back down and run from an angry cat  so perhaps the town foxes learn as cubs not to mess with cats  and have learned to live together.  Many cat and dogs manage to live under one roof ok. although  my last  dog woody and cats tod and tia never got on  and lived in separate parts of the house  and although woody was 5 times bigger than the cats he always came off worse if the had a go at each other

John, you are always so courteous with your thank yous, and you get so many comments it must take time.  We too had a warm few days, such a treat isn't after a long winter.  I have been away a bit and will be some more, so may miss commenting sometimes, but your paintings always are perfect. Xx

Thanks John. Last year  2 vixens between the  gave birth to about 9 cubs under a big shed in next doors garden

This year I can hear young call from the shed but I haven't  seen any yet..

As rusty has exactly  the same colouring as foxes it'll  be hard to tell if he was the dad

A country fox needs about a 9 mile range  whereas an urban fox can feed well on range on about half the size of a football field.

Because they're so use to people they have almost no fear  and there are lots of cases of foxes entering houses we had one in soon after our last dog died . in one case a couple of years ago they went into a house and chewed on the fingers and toes  of two  babies in there upstairs bedroom

Thank you very much John.  The Riverine Rabbit can only be found in the Northern Cape of South Africa.  They are near extinction.  There is only about 200 left.  They not like other rabbits in breeding, in that only one baby to each rabbits.  The baby is born blind.
