Foxes don't seem to swim an awful lot.
Suspiciously often I see them standing along the waterfront, though.
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 really warm days, they might just want to cool their their hot paws
But...a little 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 beautiful 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 such 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.
Just some fox reflections.
