A fox

Today I got my first real look at a fox. I spied this good-looking individual jauntily perambulating the field a little after noon, just as the first flurries of a brief May snow began to fall. I got to watch it for a half hour or so, as it pounced for prey in the grass. After disappearing in a thicket for a few minutes, s/he emerged with something furry the size of a baseball in her/his mouth. Carried it back up the field, presumably to feed pups. Very exciting!
