Hey, You Foxy Fox!

I have been fortunate to spot and photograph a red fox in our backyard this year.  Red foxes tend to be very shy and primarily nocturnal.  I saw this particular fox several times during mid-morning and early evening.

Red foxes are more common these days throughout the U.S.  Most are thought to be the descendants of red foxes imported from England for sport in the mid-eighteenth century and released on the east coast of the U.S.

A red fox can run almost 30 mph and can leap in a single bound more than a kangaroo, some 15 feet.  My fox was eagerly awaiting a very nervous squirrel to come down from our deck.  Too bad for our fox, the squirrel did get away!
