Nacho, my favorite fox, smacks his lips as the next grape comes flying his way.

I thought of you by walking my dogs this morning because I saw a small fox cub crushed on the road, he was have to be very old and did not hardly take advantage of the life. That of your photo seems very familiar.

@Focales: That is so sad. Maybe the rest of his family survived.

@Claudiel: Yes, they are wild gray foxes that just stop by for a snack. We do not touch them at all.

I love that you can play with them by throwing grapes. This is a lovely image.
