my photo

... now here's proof I have a fox in the garden!

Can you believe this urban fox was quite happily sunning itself on a bare patch in our garden. I managed to take this photo through the window. Unfortunately it sensed movement, was spooked, and took off like a bullet into the undergrowth.

Just a relief I don't keep chickens!

You must be well pleased! I've not seen much of ours since that memorable encounter with 'Missy' early in the year. xx

How wonderful to be able to capture him with the camera like that. What fun!

Oh, we had a cute fox in our neighborhood also, until one day we saw him smashed on the street :(
We miss him terribly.

For some reason I just love foxes! I saw one near my car once. No, they aren't compatible with chickens, but they are really adorable in some ways.

That is the sweetest animal. Red fox are living on Long Island, but I have never seen one near my house. I did see many of them in Maine, last summer when I was up in Bar Harbor. They are wonderful gifts in Nature.

You out smarted a fox Louise! This is a wonderful capture. I've tried to get pics of these guys but their eyes always play tricks with my camera and come out like little blobs of light. Again...wonderful. Thank-you for always being right on. oxo

I adore foxes and always feel slightly sorry for them..
I would feel very privileged to see a fox in our garden.. though we do have evidence of a badger and so does our neighbour who curses when it digs up her lawn looking for worms.

You did well to capture him..I must admit I hate them..Tasmania was fox free until about 3 yrs ago..until some idiots released them from Vic..now we are losing our wildlife before our eyes :(
