Fox, standing by the driveway, getting ready to run back into the same cornfield.
Think it's the same one in both pics, or two different ones?
Times like these make me long for a camera with a lot more zoom power! These are the clearest pics I've gotten in my attempts to get close to the fox. I do believe my father and brother also wish I had a much better zoom on my camera, too. Neither one of them was thrilled with the idea of me trying to get close to the fox (or foxes). Of course, we've all heard that foxes carry rabies, and we've all heard about those very painful thirteen rabies shots you'll have to endure if you are bitten by an uncaptured wild animal or bitten by an obviously rabid one. . . so I have to admit that I was cautious as I inched closer and closer. I truly don't believe he/she would've come after me. I really think a fox would leave a human alone, but I guess you never know for sure about a wild animal.
I can tell you this, whether or not that is the same creature in the two different pictures, I was amazed at how familiar a real fox looked to me-- looked just like all the pictures and illustrations I've seen throughout my life. A fox's movements are so graceful and delicate, and that tail is so plush and feathery.
It was an experience, to say the least.
I imagine I will have more to say about foxes, but the hour is getting late, and you know I'm not really a night owl. Hope all is well for each of you!
