Half & Half

Nacho, the daddy fox, standing half in and half out of the sun.

*Fox series
During the heat and drought in the summer of 2011, some gray foxes started coming to our yard from the nearby field and woods for water after dark. They were so skinny and stressed that we started to feed them some to help them through the hard time.
Now almost 3 years later, they are doing well, and still drop by for a drink or bite to eat many nights.

beautiful captured fox!! As he walks into the yard ... you do not have to worry about your pets .... after all it is a predator ..?

11 Dec 2013 6:38pm

@Frankiess: No problem so far. The foxes and my cats are not interested in each other. Only a predator if you are a mouse. ;-)

Superb portrait of this fabulous creature, amazingly captured in this half-shadow half-light scene. Lovely colors, excellent sharpness and focus, and great blurred background.

Etsu from Japan

Excellent capture of a wild fox. I wonder if the fox would be a female? It seems to have a gentle look somewhat. It's nice that you started to feed and help them. Have a nice day. :)
