Have you ever looked at something that is so unbelievable that it just doesn’t register? It took me a full twenty seconds to realize I was staring at a young fox in my backyard, eating seeds that the birds dropped from the feeder.
I ran to get my camera and got a few photos before he took off, but he came back about twenty minutes later (after the sun set behind our house), and that’s when I really started to get some really good looks. Originally, I thought it was a red fox, but I was later pointed to the gray fox. I would have taken either species, but I’m glad it was the more uncommon one. Hopefully he comes back for another photo shoot this soon!
