Day 245: Mon April 14th - Chasing a Fox!

Day Two Hundred Forty-five: Chasing a Fox!

Went adventuring with both my daughters this time. We ran around the trails, running from tree line to tree line, then made our way into the middle where we hiked through the brush.  Suddenly out of the corner of my eye I saw what looked like two tall ears perked up. The girls and I stopped and stared. It was difficult to see at first, but Mr. Fox was crouched down in the tall grass, watching us as we meandered his way.  Since we didn't want to scare him, and obviously we are not going to chase the fox, we stood very still and watched as he stood back up, glanced several times in our direction and went about his business.  He seemed less concerned with us than we were of him. 

I tried to zoom in and get a good shot of him on my phone, but you know how that goes. Long distant shots with a phone just don't come out well.
Funny enough, when another person out running or walking came down the trial, he'd scamper back up the hill into the bushes, but as soon as they were gone, he would come back down and hang out near us, doing whatever fox do. Even Jax didn't scare him.  The girls oohed and awed at the his beauty, his big bushy white tipped tail swishing behind him.
Thanks for paying us a visit Mr. Fox.
