Housenick Park ...
... fox kit.
Before supper this afternoon we went out to Housenick Park for a quick walk. As we were leaving we saw a red fox walk across the road in front of us. We slowed down and I grabbed my camera which is almost always on the car floor in front of me. As I put the window down hoping to see the fox again this little kit came out of the shrubbery where the adult fox was first seen.
He/she disappeared again as soon as he/she saw our vehicle. But Richard angled our SUV so that I could get a clean shot of the kit if he/she came back out of the shrubbery. And he/she did! Please look large.
I quickly took some photos and then we continued on our way as we didn't want to upset the kit any more than we did. He/she kept looking across the street to where the adult fox had gone and I knew the kit wanted to follow.
In other news: We saw our first Monarch butterfly in our garden this afternoon. And she was busy laying eggs for us to take care for her ... please see Extra.
