This young fox trotted across our yard yesterday. I would have gotten some better shots, but the neighbor's dog decided to get involved, and scared it away. Also, I didn't want to get too close, because it should not have been out like it was. It did not seem scared of me at all. I watched it running around in our yard for about five minutes while DH hunted down the camera.....boys had borrowed it for a school project, so was not put back in the usual spot! GG

Sweet!!! I love it!! He/she is quite a fox! Get it? Okay, I know it wasn't funnyBlushing .

Are you in a rural area or city? We are rural and we get deer in the backyard constantly. I have also had either a lynx or a bobcat.. I didn't get close enough to really size him up... and one year hubby and I were relaxing on the back deck and heard quacking. We looked and sure enough, there was a momma duck and several babies waddling through the back yard!! There isn't a lake or pond around for miles just a little stream that runs through our back property when it rains heavily.

There is a red fox in my neighborhood. I saw him twice last week & didn't have my phone or camera either time. I never have been able to catch a picture of him. Lucky you!

Oh how cool! I love seeing wildlife in the garden!

Our neighbor said she had a fox & baby fox in her back garden yesterday. So sad to have missed seeing them!

Great pictures!!!!

Our oldest DD lives in the middle of LA. There was a possum and three babies in her neighbor's yard a few weeks ago when we were visiting. I tried to get pics, but wasn't able to. The babies were clinging to mama's back.

We had a fox crossing our yard almost daily this Spring and it made me VERY nervous thinking it wasn't supposed to be out during the day. So I did some reading and it turns out that when they have a litter Dad stays with the kids while Mom hunts at night and Mom stays with them while Dad hunts during the day. It stays like this until the kids are old enough to hunt on their own.

I live 20 minutes outside our capital city in a subdivision. We get deer (as many as 10 at a time), raccoons, opossums, skunks, coyotes, etc., but this was the first fox. I knew it was not that unusual for it to be out during the day, but was concerned because of how stringy he looked. I know that is a weird way to describe it, but can't think of a more appropriate word. Plus, it is a wild animal, so caution is always called for. GG

Yes, erring on the side of caution when dealing with wild animals is always best.

As a country girl all my life, it's good to be cautious. Keep in mind that when a normally wild fearful animal doesn't show signs of fear, there's always a possibility of rabies. Add the stringy look, and I would be concerned. JMHO
