An Exciting Surprise

I have been watching for a fox lately, not really expecting one this early in January.

My husband spotted this one while he was working in his bow room.

It was late morning. The sun was warm.

 I could tell in one of the other pictures that this was a female.

It looked like some food had been hidden there for her.

I wonder when she’ll be back? This is barely the start of mating season here in southern Illinois.

I realize my pictures aren’t the best because of what I have to go through to take them. This is a picture of the workbench in my husband’s bow room. To take the pictures, I have to sneak down two steps and over to the window on the right. I then get positioned with the camera perched on the windowsill and snap away.

I hope there’s more fox pictures to follow.

  4. I wonder if you’ll have a den under the barn like you did last year. I can’t imagine an easier way to view nature than having it walk right into your yard!
