A fox, hanging out in the backyard, chasing birds! THIRTY YEARS the Duck family has lived in the Olde Homepond, and never THIS! And we're in the middle of Duckford, nowhere NEAR where a fox should live!
Of course, considering the Kanon '06 kick I've been on recently, I blurt out "Makoto!"... then "Ph.Duck, get your camera!"
He dashes out of the dining room, gets his camera, and hustles (quietly... he's the only person I know who can hustle quietly) onto the back porch, secures the cat (who normally goes berserk at any sign of an interloping animal; not this time... this time he came slinking in with his tail between his legs. He may not have known what he was looking at, but he knew it was WAY out of his league), and leans out the back door to snap the photo.
And an amazing photo it was, too!

You can't see it in the small-size photo, but there's a wound of some sort on the left foreleg, near the 'elbow'. It surely wasn't handicapped by it, though, judging by the way it was jumping and running around the back yard.
If you want a copy of the full-size, lemme know!

And that chair! That chair is huge! It must be like...9 feet tall.
That is a really cool picture.

Big fox came back! Stighted standing at the base of the bird feeder looking up for a snack. He is beautiful. We may have to name him now.

By the way, MomDuck: Makoto. On this, I will brook no argument. :-)

I have put out an Edgewater neighborhood alert to see if others have seen the fox, too. We'll see if there are any responses.
