'What must I do, to tame you?' asked the little prince.
'You must be very patient,' replied the fox. 'First you will sit down at a little distance from me-like that-in the grass. I shall look at you out of the corner of my eye, and you will say nothing. Words are the source of misunderstandings. But you will sit a little closer to me, every day...” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
“And just like a midsummer nights breeze, he ran away, into the moonlight, a fox, proud and strong. The lone wolf walked away, saddened he was gone.” ~Jason Winchester
**In the summer of 2011 during a drought some wild gray foxes started coming to our yard from the nearby field and woods for water.
soon they dropped by almost every night. One was a beautiful male with a notch out of his ear so I started calling him Nacho.
That was the beginning of a five year "friendship" with Nacho and his family. He was friendly, but not tame. We never tried to touch him. Sometimes when I was outside, he would just come and stay close by.
I know many of you came to love him through photos. My portfolio has many shots of Nacho over the past five years.
I'm very sad to say that Nacho is gone. He was a wild fox, and there are many things that could have happened. We will probably never know, and that might be best. I miss him so much!
