The fox and the snow

Posted By on December 10, 2010

“Who lives in a garden like this?”

Like most of the rest of the UK, Fox Towers’ neck of the woods has had snow — quite a bit of snow last week, actually. It seemed like a perfect opportunity to take some lovely photos of our local foxes against a nice white background, but were they cooperating? No, friends, they were not. I knew they were still around — partly from seeing fox footprints in the snow, partly from occasional glimpses of foxes in twilight, and partly because of the infinite amount of fox food that was being consumed — but they just were not coming out in daylight. At least not when I was within reach of a camera.

Then last Friday, Paletail — one of our current residents — happened to wander out onto the lawn around lunchtime, looking for some food. Time for photos! And, since I am not above bribing the foxes to stay around for photos in the same way that the sea is not above the clouds, the remains of the previous week’s roast chicken made it out onto the lawn as well.

I’ve split the results into three posts so that they don’t take too long to load! And also I wouldn’t want you to get fox fatigue ;) (I’m afraid I didn’t try witty titles for them, either.) The other two posts will be up either today or over the weekend.

Feel free to pass a link to the post to anyone you think might appreciate them!
