The better to eat you!
Falling into the category of content trumps quality. There’s been a large band of rain coming through our area, and I know when it rains at night it means foxes in the morning.
Unable to hunt in the black of the night, Foxy Junior is known to trot through the manor’s garden around nine in the morning. Knowing that he was probably hungry from a wet night, I set out some chicken for him in a bowl. Sure enough, true as clockwork I saw him trotting around the front driveway, and heading to the back where the chicken was.
Grabbing the camera, I had to shoot through the window. But he was quick! Trying to figure out his good fortune he sniffed around.
I thought he’d take one piece at a time, then come back each time for the next. But not this time. What a big mouth Foxy Junior has..he loaded up all four pieces and ran off in a flash.
It’s to rain again tonight, and tomorrow I’ll be better prepared. This is a different fox than the one I saw in early spring. He’s smaller and rather thin. But healthy nonetheless. Looks like I’ll need a bigger chicken though to slow him down. 🙂
