Fearsome creatures

Fearsome creatures September 2, 2011

I take pictures, did you know? Sometimes it’s just scenery, sometimes events with people in them.

But sometimes it’s scary things. It’s fairly woodsy here in upstate New York, and though I know most people from outside the state picture wall-to-wall cities, parts of it are actually pretty wild. I know you’ll find this hard to believe, but the state has some pretty big predators.

Living as I do on the edge of the wilds, I get to see them sometimes. Usually they’re safely distant, but just a few evenings ago, one of them came up INTO MY YARD. Right outside my window, in fact, in broad daylight!

I was lucky to have my camera. Picture after the fold.

This is a gray fox, Urocyon cinereoargenteus. The pic was taken in low light, and through a window, so it looks a little fuzzy.

But hey, if you’re photographing a baby fox, fuzzy works, right?

"Best to you, Mr. Fox, and for your efforts."
