Gray Fox


Gray Fox

Eyes burning in the twilight

Sense of smell overrides fear

Looking for that porkchop bone

tossed out earlier

Constant cravings

push instinct aside

Hunger becomes the driver

while slinking in the shadows

I was surprised to see this fox in the back yard, when I went to close the curtain on my sliding door.  He stayed around long enough for me to get my camera. But, when I slid the door open for a better shot he turned and headed back into the woods.

This is a shaky shot:

  1. I’m glad he stayed long enough for that photo op! But glad he didn’t hang around too long. We had a fox den a few years back just about 1/8 mile from our house. Such fun to watch the kits tumble and play!
