I've been trying to take a picture of a regular visitor to the back yard. Sunday, I missed my opportunity because I didn't think to bring my camera when I walked out to the street to grab the Sunday newspaper. I heard the crows harassing "something" and walked back to look. The red fox that comes looking for squirrels in the back was just coming up the path towards me. I held my breath. He (or she) ran.

Today I was outside taking a picture when the racket began. I turned my head and there it was again...the fox... no more than 3 - 4 feet away. The fox was quicker than I was although I think we were equally surprised. I took a picture but my camera is old and lacks "zoom". There is a tiny reddish spot on the picture and that would be "the fox".

My new camera has been ordered and will be delivered on Friday.
