Fox Hill

Aimee snagged some photos of one of the foxes the other day. We have at least two of these guys living in and around our woods. I know there are two because I saw two either playing or fighting early one morning. I don’t know a lot about foxes but I am thinking maybe the mates stick together and a mated pair is what I saw. We have seen them around a few times now and I even had the opportunity to watch one chasing a rabbit which was a remarkable thing to witness. They really are a cool animal to observe.
We plan to get some laying hens next spring so it is unfortunate that such a beautiful animal is probably going to become our worst enemy. For now though we can just enjoy them in all there sneaky fox endeavors. Sorry the picture isn't bigger, apparently they don't like to stick around and smile for the camera.

There is always something almost magical about seeing the elusive fox, isn't there?

There really is. I remember when I was a kid seeing a fox was a lot less common it sure is nice to see them making such a come back.
