A Veritable Fox

A fox! An urban fox!

When I referred to an urban fox in a recent post I was definitely joking. But tonight I was alerted by the peep of the security light going on. "Another damn cat," I thought. But it wasn't. It was a fox. No doubt about it - it trotted across the lawn several times and stood still to shake the rain out of its fur.

I can't explain how thrilled I am at this. It seems such a privilege to have this wild creature come and visit my garden. It seems less and less like we are encroaching onto the countryside and more and more that countryside and suburbs are coming together as one.
