As I wait for winter to end, I spend a lot of time looking out the window, which overlooks a vast open space of farm fields, hedgerows, and distant bluish hills. It’s a daily occurrence to see wildlife of some kind traipsing through the fields: geese, deer, groundhogs, turkeys and foxes.
I keep a camera handy just in case I see something good. I admit that I haven’t taken any pictures of groundhogs, and the deer are so common that I will hardly ever photograph them. But foxes are a different story. If the fox is close enough and if it’s light enough outside, I will almost always snap some shots of the fox.
Lately the foxes I’ve been seeing have been a little odd.
This one is missing all the fur on its tail.
And this one has only three legs.
As long as these foxes keep my garden free of little veggie-eating critters, I don’t care what their tails look like or how many legs that have. For more info on foxes, go here: organicgardening.com/learn-and-grow/red-fox
