Love That Face!

Posted by

Three years ago, during the drought and heat wave here in Texas, a family of gray foxes began to come into our yard to drink out of the water pan we kept for birds and squirrels. They were very thin and hungry so we helped them out through the summer with some food and water. Now, three years later, they are thriving, and come by from time to time for a snack and a treat. They LOVE grapes, and we love watching them hunt in the field behind our house.
This is a little daddy fox we call Nacho.

You are so fortunate to have the woods behind you; they had their space but have learned to come out and trust you too. This is another wonderful portrait of Nacho!
