I saw a fox crossing the road out by the park a couple summers ago--I'd read that foxes were among the reasons that the bunnies were gone.  [To which I say "good riddance."]

Wonderful pictures! Foxes are my favorite.

How'd she get it to pose for a photo shoot?

Nice photos! What a healthy-looking fox.

We have had a gray fox in our neighborhood (near the former East High School) recently. I looked it up, and the mammal book said that gray foxes climb trees!

Four kits were born out at the end of the runway at Sky Harbor this past spring (not the first year this has happened). One of them was injured on a fishing lure - DNR helped it, then returned it to its family. One of the kits (injured one?) became quite habituated to humans.

I noticed the bunnies disappeared right around the time we had that influx of Owls a few years ago.

My grandpa says one of these guys eats dog biscuits. Maybe the injured one too?

Awww! He's soooo cute! Great photos - it almost looks like he's posing for you.

Lovely photos! Quite a character that fox has.

Interesting about the kit injured on the fishing lure. Besides all the lead that people out to enjoy themselves by attacking wildlife leave around, I wonder how many animals are injured each year by all the metal hooks and debris and nylon cords you lovers of nature litter the lakes with?

Where'd all the cute white and black bunnies go?

The cute little bunnies were all killed by fishing lures I guess.

I gave up bunny fishing due the influx of Chicagoan welfare-conspiracy mosquitoes.

Isn't that mosquito'es, and bunni'es, and fox'es?  That's what the good folks at Sir Ben's and Black Water tell me.

Hey Mildred, I love nature so much think I'll kill a black bear this Thursday. I dedicate the kill to you. Let us prey.

And on that note, here's a coyote (or coyote-like critter) in South Minneapolis' Armatage neighborhood today.

Those pictures are fantastic! Great shots. I can't believe that fox hung around for such a long photo shoot.

Thanks for the beautiful pictures and for the tally. We just love our occasional visits of nature's foxes, bears, and used to have rabbits! Chipmonks and squirrels are great visitors too.

I guess this is supposed to inflame me or something. There are a lot of losers out there, I guess! Have fun!

Mildred, something about Biff's posts give the impression he is a bit stunted, don't take his attacks to heart.
