Fox

Portrait of a Red Fox

Oh what a rare opportunity it was when a friend invited me over to see this gorgeous creature. It was calmly lounging in the backyard without a care in the world and no worries about the two shutterbugs that were furiously taking pictures of it.

This image was one of the last I took, as it became bored with us and got ready to leave. As it did, it paused just long enough for me get its portrait. Beautiful!

Red Foxes are quite common across the entire Northern Hemisphere from near the equator to the Arctic Circle. As shown here, they are extremely adaptable and able to coexist in areas with large human populations.

“My, what big eyes you have!”

Last week I posted a picture of this handsome guy showcasing his teeth. Here, as he keeps close watch on the neighborhood, his big eyes are the focus.

This Red Fox has taken up residence in a suburban area north of Denver, Colorado and has proven to be quite tolerant of people as was evidenced by the lounging he did while a friend and I sat photographing him.

My what big teeth you have!

Suburban wildlife photo ops don’t get much better than this! My friend, Patrick, has had a pretty routine visitor to his suburban backyard lately. Multiple times he has invited me up to come check it out but each time the foxy creature bailed before I could get there.

On Monday evening it finally hung around until I got there and we were able to spend 20 minutes or so observing this cool dude. Absolutely amazing and by far the best fox pics I have ever taken. You can bet I’ll be sharing many, may more of this guy! Taken in Thornton, Colorado.

What does the fox say?

It really didn’t say much yesterday when it stopped for a brief instant as it bolted across the road. Not the best quality of pic as I was caught totally off guard by this beautiful animal. My attention was focused on a bald eagle (pic posted yesterday) when out of the corner of my eye I see a red streak.

The fox was running across the road quite a good ways away and stopped to check out my son and I. I swung my camera around and only managed a couple rushed shots. This is one of the few times I have ever seen a fox and the first one I have ever gotten a picture of so while not a great image, I am happy. 😉 Taken in Firestone, Colorado.

Scroll down below the image for more from yesterday.
