This morning we watched a fox out in the middle of the golf course. Probably the best look at a fox we've ever had. It was a long way away, but I used my Nikon with the 200 mm zoom, and was later able to crop the pictures dramatically, giving a good view of the fox. Looked healthy too.

Can you spot it, right in the middle of the picture but looking away from us and crouched down, possibly eating something? It stayed there for several minutes.
Foxes are among the most adaptable of creatures, living in the urban environment quite comfortably, though their diet may shift towards junk food! Here the golf course back onto countryside fields and two woodlots. Through Meaford runs the steep slope of the ancient glacial Lake Nipissing shoreline, and the relatively wild valley of the Bighead River comes right into town. So it's not surprising to see foxes living here successfully. I just hope we see them more often!
