Female Gray Fox-April 24, 2011

This is another female Gray Fox that has been coming for a few years. I was happy to see her. I haven't seen her since last fall. She is not the mate to the male fox that is here every night. She came out of the woods early this evening so I was able to get some good shots of her. The video will be on Youtube. She has such a pretty face.

She keeps watching over in the neighbor's yard because they have a dog tied up over there. Dogs are scary to these foxes and are one of their known enemies because dogs can kill them. The bottom left photo shows her going back into the woods.

The bottom photo is when she was chewing some food so it's not good.

Her home up in the back woods. These woods go far so these foxes could live anywhere.

It's such a pleasure to see any of the foxes. Having this one come back shows that many of the older ones may be fine. They may have just moved on.

I am always happy when I see one of the older ones Ratty. And I do know that the others had to find their own territory. But nice to know the adults are still around. Pretty soon I'll see the babies! Another four to five weeks maybe.
Thanks Country Mouse. I love these Gray Fox. I don't have red ones around here. Have only seen them a couple times from a distance, way out in the country.
Thanks Rain. They are so pretty. Some just have a prettier face than others.
Thanks Shelly. I'm glad you enjoy them also!!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment everyone! I appreciate it very much.
