Lucky, Half Tail, Long Tail and Scrappy. These have been our foxes over many years in Corolla. Lucky had no tail, coupled with a wonky leg. We assumed a car clipped him along route 12. Lucky boy, that little fox!
Between scraps thrown behind beach houses and cat food left for feral cats, these gray foxes are getting a little too close for their own good. Nevertheless, far be it from me to miss a photo opportunity!
This weekend Scrappy came for a visit. Usually these OBX foxes will run the minute they see you move. However, Saturday night Scrappy gave me a few moments to capture his majestic face with my trusty camera.
The foxes come out just at dusk. My camera is not able to focus on far away images with the sun almost down. This made for a hard few moments of frantic snapping. Despite the handicap, I am in love with the faces this beautiful gray fox made for me!
