Urban Foxes

Red Fox (vulpes vulpes)


I'll be out of town for a few weeks and will post and check blogs as I have the time. Everyone have a nice weekend….and for those of you seeing signs of springs…..enjoy!!!

There are a couple foxes that often make the rounds in our neighborhood just as it's getting dark. They skirt the back fence and go down the street in front of our house. One is quite crippled because of a broken leg that healed badly. The foxes don't cause problems, but just quietly go on their way looking for tidbits, scouting for something to eat. Neighbors sometimes take pity on the poor broken-leg fox and put out an egg or small piece of meat when they see him coming.

All of these were shot from either my back deck or looking out the front door of my house. Needless to say, the minute they feel threatened all you see is tail and back legs receding in the distance. Riley stays in the house when I'm shooting foxes ;))

Little “broken leg” is the one with dark fur around his eyes.

These gave me a flashback from when I was very young, and met a fox in the forest. We both stopped, and stared at each other, for minutes. It felt like minutes, but was probably a couple of seconds.

Nice shots

I really prefer the colored shots. Great captures. I take it you don't have cats? If you did you wouldn't want the fox anywhere near your house.

great set, tasmania is spending millions of dollars at the moment trying to eradicate the fox from the state as they are such efficient hunters and the local wild animals have no defence from them, it is wonderful to see them in there native land as they are such a beautiful animal....but introduced some where else it can be disaster....

Fox are a favorite animal of mine, so pretty. If that poor guy with the bad leg starts looking over weight, you'll know that EVERYONE is feeling sorry for him! :-) Have a great time away!

Brenda Nelson 11 years, 3 months ago

Larry and I share only one brain so it's no wonder he made the same shot a fave of his! These are so beautiful - but #7 is perfect in color and capture. I can't look away, LookAgain! (And I thought my little deer were precious.)
