About once a season I am blessed with a great opportunity to snap some pics of our favorite wildlife visitor, the Grey Fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus). This time of year the nocturnal and crepuscular animals are out and about foraging for food for the ever growing youngsters. Skunks, raccoons, deer
and of course, my much enjoyed foxes are all making appearances day and night.
Here are some of the results of this years photo shoot. The fox was watching me refill the feeder across from the deck. They love sunflower seeds and it is a good source of fat for much of the wildlife, not just the birds. Anyway, in full view of my little friend I took a handful of seed and dropped it on the ground and moved off to the next feeder down by the wood boiler Rube. When I turned to head back, she was at the seed. I had to walk by her to get back into the house. I was on one side of the driveway, she/he on the other, not more than 10 feet away. I was able to grab my phone on the deck railing and went to work. She stayed there for at least 30 minutes and sampled the seed I left out for the Stellar Jays too. Enjoy!
