Nacho Waiting

Nacho Week
Although gray foxes 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.
I love this shot of Nacho taken a few weeks ago. He was sitting a few feet from our patio, waiting for someone to appear with his favorite snack of red grapes.

Me too smile. Actually, I laughed when the picture is opened. It's great to see such a look in the morning.

wow !! Ears perked . Eyes full of anticipation..
what a shot !! You must have treated him to a bunch of grapes I am sure !!!!!I feel like reaching out and touching his nose.
What is the actual distance between you and Nacho when you click these shots ?

@Devi: Usually about four to ten yards, but sometimes he is close enough to touch, although I do not ever try to touch him.
