22 July 2012: There is a family of foxes living in a wooded area of our backyard.  Once in a while they run across our lawn.  In this photo, on a beautiful spring day, they came out and romped around for about five minutes.  I had to hurry to grab my camera and was able to take half a dozen shots.  This one turned out to be the best.


11 March 2014: Almost two years later, we still see the foxes once in a while, or signs that they are still around. The number of rabbits has decreased dramatically, a boon to our vegetable garden which used to be a buffet restaurant for the rabbits. If only the foxes could chase away the crows which have decimated our Asian pear trees to the point that we can barely get half a dozen pears out of thousands.
