Camera Critters #48

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.

My Red Fox came back and put on quite the show in my back yard. Our neighbor had been out of town so his dog had not been harassing the fox. He was willing to come right up beside my garden area.
He was at alert and even though he couldn't see me he was suspicious and cautious.
He stayed a minute and then high tailed it into the woods.
He marked his trail as a warning to other would be visitors.
He then started to come back into the yard but thought better of it. This is the last shot as he went behind the shed not to be seen again. Goodbye Mr. Red Fox, gone but not forgotten. Thanks for the show.
You can see some other great critters by checking the above site.

I think you have a PET, Tom... NOT!!!!! They are gorgeous animals, aren't they?

Wonder if it's always the same one---or whether there is a 'family' of them nearby????? Hmmmmmmm..

Take it easy--and keep healing!! Have a great week.

Love the fox shots! Hard to believe he came out so close to people-guess he has become use to the area. His red coat really shows up nicely!

Warren Baker said...

hey FG, Your fox's look just a little more higher class than ours!!

Michele said...

The fox is wonderful... the first photo truly turned out perfectly, didn't it?
What a nice visit from Mr.Fox and so nice of him to pose for you!
I have yet to capture a fox on film but I don't think I will ever match these shots! Very nice indeed!

I hope you are continuing to do well.

I enjoyed your fox pics, and your SkyWatch post, too. Thanks!

It seems unusual that a fox would come so close in daylight. Nice shots! My husband has seen a fox on our property after dark, though.

Janie said...

What a beautiful creature. And you did an amazing job of getting photos of such a wary guy.

Babooshka said...

Well you know I'm green with envy now. He must really trust to be so close.

Salty said...

What a show!! I simply love the shot of him alert, fantastic!

I have never had a Red in camera range that so much as gave me one chance to fire the shutter, you are fortunate!

Willard said...

It's always priceless to have encounters like this. I'm glad you had to opportunity and enjoyed the pictures.

Sara G said...

Hey Tom- What a great opportunity to get images of a red fox. Hopefully the dog doesn't come back!

George said...

This is a great sequence. I hope the fox will come back so you can get more pictures. It's a beautiful animal.

Luke Wiley said...

You were able to get so many shots of this guy. Cool!

Barbara said...

What a beautiful fox. I would love to have the chance to see one that close up. Smiles B

Tina said...

Oh what a nice job you did capturing him with your camera! He is very striking and getting these shots must have been tricky...they are so easily spooked. I have tried a few times to photograph one who lives nearby but I have not been successful.
Just love his look in that second pic!

Ken Conger Photography said...

Seems to be a regular visitor now. Great series. Blue Skies.

NoBS said...

Great pictures! I ran into a video on the internet earlier in the week of a fox taking advantage of a backyard trampoline! Very cute!

Robert V. Sobczak said...

That's one good looking fox. Of course the snow really sets him off in the photo. They are interesting creatures. We don't have them down here in south Florida.

Gretchen said...

Never been lucky enough to get shots of a fox like this. Congrats!! :)

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

This one of the loveliest creatures I have seen. They look so cuddly. You are lucky to stay in an area where these wild creatures come into the yard.

How are you felling now Tom? Better, I hope?

Mike - Fenphotography said...

Hi fishing guy, stunning little fellow isnt he, nice pics, looks great in his winter coat.
Thanks for dropping by, Mike.

Arlene said...

I hope he will still come back to visit you.

He looks cute.

Twisted Fencepost said...

Great shots, FG.
We have them here on the farm, I never see them during daylight though.

Kathiesbirds said...

What a cute fox! What a nice encounter with nature for you!

storyteller said...

What a wonderful series of photos! Looking at them reminds me how a friend and I used to happen upon a fox regularly when walking along the beach trail.
Hugs and blessings,

T and S said...

Stunning set of images Tom. The 2nd one is a keeper for sure.

Tom : I have a dedication for you on my blog. check it out when you get some time.

Great photos of a lovely fox, and a great story to go with it!

I've never seen a wild fox before. I think that's a beautiful one with a great sense of curiosity.
