Backyard Wildlife: Fox

I have seen this (or another fox) several times recently but this was the first time it stayed visible long enough for me to get a photo. It is fun having backyard wildlife to connect us to nature.

A few years ago another fox enjoyed laying out in the sun in my backyard for a few weeks.

I am amazed how many animals I have seen in my backyard in a very urban area. In the last few weeks, in addition to this fox: possum, raccoon (I’ll post photos later), deer, squirrels, and various birds.

Here is an updated photo of deer, since my first few sightings didn’t result in a good photo.

I have seen this mother and 2 does many times so I suspect they are living in a small patch of woods behind my house. This time one of the does decided to go out and across my road and the mother then followed with the other doe and they wandered off into the neighborhood.

    Fox is very beautiful. It seemed to me that the deer is very sad. This is true?
