Camera-Critters #115

I was getting ready to go for a walk, and I mentioned to Hubs that I would need to plug my camera battery in to charge when I got back. So, I figured I'd go get the charger and have it ready for when I returned home. However, I couldn't find the charger. I continued looking for it, and Hubs finally said, "You better get going on your walk!"

I replied, "I'm going. I'm going. It's not like it's gonna be dark any time soon!"

He said, "Yeah but you can find your charger later," Then he looked out the window and exclaimed, "Besides! There's a fox running through our yard to come find you!"

I replied "Yeah right!" and came up behind him and looked out the window to see a fox run through our yard and stand under the window by where I sit in the evenings! It WAS like he was looking for me!

Hubs knows me all too well and was already standing by the front door with his hand on the knob, as I was throwing my camera strap over my neck. By the time I turned around, he whipped the door open, I whispered, "Thanks!" as I sprinted out the door following the fox, who had heard us and proceeded to go on the walk without me...

Sometimes, ya just gotta kick up your heels... errrr paws!

Great shot! I never have my camera when I see wildlife unexpectedly!


At least the Fox knows which side of the road to 'high step' down 8v) Nice shots.

Wow! what a cool capture. I love this photo. I've learned now to always bring my camera along no matter what I'm doing, It's important to be ready at all times :)

He he, you sound like me. Don't you hate hunting for things, and getting sidetracked? How cool your hubs knew to let you know quickly the fox was there. That thing looks hungry. Are all foxes that thin? Oh, and did you get your walk in, and your batteries charged?

I put my photos on a post last night, scheduled them to appear on the blog this morning, then forgot to go back and write what was in the photos. I was going to have to look the butterfly up anyway, and maybe I will yet.

We've been having fun with our 2 year old grandson today, and just got back from the car ride to get him to sleep. I drove by some of the gardens that are on the list to be toured tomorrow for gardening with wildlife in mind. I haven't decided yet if I'm going.

Have a great week!


Where we lived a fox would come steal anything leather I guess for the kits to chew. We saw him run off with a neighbours boot one day and my husband was always missing his gloves.


How cool! You got good shots of the fox too! :)

Neat photos! We had a fox that looked like this run off with one of our chickens a couple of weeks ago. The fox missed a week or two before that and two chickens got away and the poor fox ended up with a mouth full of feathers. I always wished I could have taken a photo.


Oh what an adorable little model for your great shots :)


It's good that your hubs keep you going that time you caught the fox on your door, nice capture of the fox...great shot of his high heel steps..


Wow, Misty, that is a rare and exciting encounter.
