Fox series
This is one of my favorite shots of the daddy fox.

Although foxes are carnivora and will eat meat, they are more accurately described as omnivorous. Food sources include fruits, grains and vegetable matter as well as insects, voles, field mice, and shrews. The gray fox dislikes a hullaballoo and, contrary to cartoon portrayals, it is highly unlikely that he will raid a henhouse.

He was stretched out a few feet from our patio, waiting for someone to appear with his little pan of food.
