Cute little guy! We used to have a lot more red foxes in our area, but I don't really see them much anymore.

I've gathered up some more predators from my neck of the woods the past few weeks -

Osprey with a catch:

Sizing up which portion looks right for lunch:

Looks like someone didn't pay attention to the signs not to stray off the trail!:

Not a good day to be a snake:

Alligator crossing - be sure to give the right of way!:

Shallow water makes it a little harder to hide:

Snooping around looking for trouble:

This osprey was giving me the eye...didn't want me to try to steal its fish:

Great shots zack,hopefully that oil isn't going to effect your population any?
Sad stuff that,gonna take a huge toll no matter whats done I think.
Takin wayyyy too long IMO!! :evil:

Not many Foxes left around here since the Coyote's have moved in and taken hold.
The few left try to lay low for the most part.

great shots guys... agree with kpr that hopefully the oil spill doesnt reach you zack... grrrrrr..... lets hear those loudmouths now with their "drill baby drill" slogan.. mind you unless it hit their back yard I doubt it highly even this spill bothers them... really worried about the mangroves along the whole southern coast.. if it gets in there... taking a deep breath now....

Back home tomorrow.. hopefully get out for some pics on the weekend :D

Thanks guys on the pics, and the oil worries. So far, at least early on, the oil may reach Florida's west coast - which would indeed be a disaster as there are some spectacular bird and wildlife sanctuaries there, notably Ding Darling in Sanibel Island. There is a chance that if the oil keeps gushing, it'll get caught up in the gulf stream down by the Keys, and sweep straight up the Florida east coast, which is the side I live on. I really hope not...what a nasty disaster this is.

Fortunately at least for my birding and wildlife sites, they are all inland, connected to or feeding from the Everglades river, down the middle of our state draining from Lake Okeechobee. So my spots won't be soiled...and hopefully the shorebirds and refuge birds in the affected area are smart enough to head inland before getting trapped in the slick.

Very nasty indeed Zack we are all hoping they find a way to get it stopped and cleaned up very soon.

Spotted this guy today while I was trying to get shots of Barn Swallows.
Looks like he is having Trout for lunch.

This was from my school trip to Venice. We went for an early morning walk after a long night (half our class got drunk and a teacher caught them, one guy was puking for 3 hours straight so a couple of us sober guys stayed awake so they didnt kill themselfs (we were sucessful: one guy almost climbed out of a 2nd story window, but we got him back in quickly))
Anyways, we went for a walk to get the scent of alcohol from us and to streach our legs and i just stumbled on this guy chilling on one of the many pilons in the Venetian seaside.
I only had a superzoom so i couldnt realy fiddle around with trying to get the background more blurry or anything.

 Post subject: Grey Fox
PostPosted: Sun Jul 04, 2010 5:19 pm 
Here is one of my favorite shots so far. We see alot of red foxes at times, but the grey foxes are very elusive, so I was thrilled to catch a break.
This grey fox was eating blackberries and stopped just long enough for a couple of photos. This was at the Manassas National Battlefield Park.
This was one of the best shots.
