Beginnings. Apparently this fox family has just come forth from the den. Mother fox appears thirsty and needs to feed her herself and to defend her new kits. With ivy growing around the Ace she has not been in defense mode for awhile. She needs to be sharp and focused bringing forth her family into the wilds. There doesn't seem to be any wiliness to this fox, just maternal instincts, which is probably one of the strongest defenses there is.
