As I stood at the kitchen sink rinsing out my cereal bowl, I was looking out of the window into our back yard. Low and behold outside our fence came trotting a beautiful Red Fox!!! I haven't seen one in probably 14 years and here it was right behind my house. I throw out my leftovers for the possums and coons but I think this fox has probably been helping it's self too!!! This was so exciting to me. I love nature!!!!!! This started my day out with a big smile, work was good, what a day!!!!:):)

Cool! They are beautiful animals for sure. Keep your camera near by and maybe you can get some pics to post! :)

They are fun to see. we get a peek at one a couple times a year. We know they are there, but they don't come out of the prairie grass/wetland very often. They have plenty of cover and prey in there.

PS: We see them less since HK has been on the scene.

We have fox and coyote in the woods behind our house. Unfortunately, a lot of them have mange and don't look so hot.

There was one hanging around the field where our daughter's peewee soccer game was held this past weekend. I think the 8AM start-time roused her from her bed.

I used to have a fox who I saw daily for about 2 years on my way to work. I mean, rain, shine, snow, hail, always the same time, same place, we crossed paths.

One day I came up over the crest of the hill where we would see each other every day, and there he was sitting in the middle of the road. I mean sitting smack in the middle - prior to this, he'd be in the field about 10 feet of the road, but always there.

I slowed to a stop RIGHT BESIDE him, rolled down the window and said "hey buddy - you gotta get yourself off the pavement,you're gonna get killed" We sat looking at each other for probably 10 - 15 seconds, he got up, trotted off, and when he got to the fence line, looked back as if to say "See ya!".

No word of a lie, that actually happened. That was the last time I saw my fox too. I figure he was waiting for me that day to do just what he did - to tell me so long, he was moving onward and outwards.

I miss my little Renard. He was quite a "companion" for 2 years.

We have a lot of them along the creeks and salt marshes around town. I Travel about two miles on a county road to get from the Highway 77 By-pass to highway 2 going and coming to work, I see them quite often.

that's a neat story. I never seen real wildlife except for deer once in a while, what we city folk miss.
