Like a Fox
May 6, 2013

I get asked all the time, “do you really carry a camera with you everywhere you go?”. Yes, I do, and this is why. This fox was in front of my house, the kids were with me, I just backed out of the driveway, started up the street and it ran in front of the truck chasing a squirrel who ran up a telephone pole to avoid being dinner. It then sat at the base of the telephone pole as if the squirrel would come back.  After a minute it gave up, grabbed something off my neighbor’s lawn and paced back and forth allowing me to get these shots. Grabbed the camera from the back seat and shot away. I have seen it a few times, it has a path it follows in the morning across the front lawns of some neighbors then down the street, this was first time I had seen it out in the evening. Wish I could figure out what was in its mouth, when I blow up the shot, it looks like it might be a rodent.

    A really nice shot. We see them around here, too, but the camera is never handy.
