Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Tally - Ho!

Isn't that what's called on a fox hunt?  What does the fox call when it hunts?

We've been seeing the fox in the last week just passing through along the edge of the glen heading east each time.





This morning it was hunting in the backyard.  First it went for the mourning doves under the bird feeder then chased a squirrel that found refuge climbing one of the beams on the deck.



It obviously was hungry and took off running after something then returned twice.



Forgive the photos.  It was constantly on the move.

Don't know if its related to this one or this one or even this one.

I've never seen a fox in person. This is as close as I have ever seen one. It's a very beautiful animal. Of course, there is the obligatory reference to that crazy song....'what does the fox say', LOL!

Neat pictures, thanks for sharing!!

The fox was back this morning again trying to catch the birds under the feeder.

The fox are pretty, great visitor. I guess all the wildlife have to eat, I feel sorry for them in the winter.
Thanks for linking up to Saturday's Critters! Happy weekend to you!

Sounds like a rather desperate fox if it needs to get so close to humans regularly. Wonderful photos.
