Here’s the fox!

Did you spot him? Here’s the original photo:

And then the fox. As Graham wrote:

He’s in the shrubbery to the left of the picture. The 2nd is a close up, not very good I’m afraid but it does show that he was there. He knows I’m there but as long as I don’t go too close he’s quite happy to ignore me.

Graham sent two more photos of the fox and added this: “This fox is a regular visitor & just loves to relax :-)” :

    Curiously unafraid. A great chance to get good pictures. That belly sprawl gives the impression of a pet dog on the living room carpet.

    A few years ago I had two friendly foxes in the back yard as well. They were there to snack on the 14 squirrels that were snacking on maple tree seeds.

    At first glnce, that bush the fox is sprawled beside looks like a mass of grapes.

    After all these years of living alone it now looks as though I’ve got to share my home. I went out to the garden again this morning, to enjoy my morning coffee, and the fox was there again, in the same position. He looked at me, shook his head, got up, did the circling thing that d-gs do and laid down again. I wonder if this is where he’s come to rest during the day, every day now? It certainly keeps the local moggies away, they avoid the garden while hes here, so no more cat poo all over the garden. He’ll also help to keep rats/mice away, so, win/win 🙂

      Now that our Maggie is gone after 12 years of constant companionship, I’ve begun to “adopt” wild animals – at least the big hole in the heart is beginning to fill up with a small collection of scampering, hopping and crawling creatures. Without the dog to frighten them away, rabbits, snakes, frogs, chipmunks, etc are venturing closer and seem to be insisting on at least a some kind of attention.

      Unlike moggies, he’s part of the ecosystem, so good for him for asserting his rights! Also, he’s darn cute.
