Coastal Foxes


jeff_mcgraw_photography_bunny_hunterMet this little fella in a coastal meadow. What a character! After sizing each other up in a comical staring contest he rolled off his back, climbed up on top this rabbit mound and flopped down for a visit. I responded to his invitation to pow wow and did likewise. Lol He wasn’t the least afraid and appeared curious of my equipment. Just an exceptionally beautiful animal.

The fox in this image appears to be about 5 months and likely an Eurasaian Fox vrs or local Red Fox.. They were introduced in Island County (Washington State) at the turn of the century to keep the likewise introduced rabbit populations from growing geometrically. From the looks of my content little friend I think they like their job.
