Blogger Addict!

OK, it's official.....I'm now a blogging addict. Else why would I be sitting here at 11:40 at night posting something when the alarm goes off at 4 AM! But, I've just seen the most amazing thing in my yard and blogging is so much more polite than calling someone on the phone to wake them up and tell them I've just taken pictures of A FOX IN MY YARD!!


Wow, this is just the coolest thing and something I never expected to see in my yard.


Sophie woke me up to say she had to go out. When I turned on the backyard light, I could see something sitting by the ground feeder tray eating. It was definitely too big to be a rabbit, so I grabbed my little binoculars (yes, I got them all over the house) and looked to see it was a fox. No wonder those dogs are always sniffing around in the morning when we get up.


I was able to hold the spotlight up to the glass with my leg and take these really bad pictures, but I think you can definitely tell it's a fox. I wonder if it has babies somewhere....
Good night, I'm going back to bed and I'm going to thank God for the opportunity to experience this and maybe dream about baby foxes.

Yes, blogging does get addictive, but I haven't quit my job yet. I have never seen a fox in the wild and like your attitude towards seeing one. A lot of people would be inclined to get out a shotgun thinking it would be dangerous.

Ruth, I love foxes and because the coyotes have made a comeback in southeastern Minnesota, we almost never see foxes anymore, so this was really a treat for me!

Cool! I'm amazed to see them occasionally trotting around the suburbs up here in the Cities too. Welcome to blogger addicts anonymous!

Hi Larry, it does look like a ghost fox. I definitely need to work on my night-time photography skills!
