This afternoon I glanced out the window and saw a fox. It looked young, healthy and sleepy.
It looked back at me through the window, decided I wasn’t a threat, turned three times in a circle and lay down in the grass.
I guess my backyard is a familiar place for this fox because he looked very much at home. He was obviously unconcerned that my dogs were in the front yard. He just wanted a nap.
Unfortunately, when I got my camera, I spooked him and he disappeared into the undergrowth up the hill.
I hope he’ll come back.
Funnily enough, I saw a fox last week out on the trails (which abut my house). Maybe it was the same fox. He was trotting down the trail like he owned it. Since I was riding, I don’t think he realized right away that I was human and he let me get pretty close. Or, maybe he didn’t care.
