Hanging Out

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 28 December 2013 in Animal & Insect.

We are lucky to live in a quiet place where there's a field and a thick, brushy wooded area behind us, even though we are in a large city. We are often rewarded by being able to sit quietly within sight of these beautiful, interesting, and entertaining creatures.
The foxes observe us occasionally, but as long as we make no sudden, threatening moves or noise and remain at a safe distance, they will usually go about the business of searching for food. Spending time outside with the foxes or watching them from the windows is one of our favorite things to do.
