When I went to Palmyra Cove this morning, I came across this young Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) hunting. It ended up finding some sort of critter, which it played with - with little regard to me.
Here, he looks over to make sure I wasn't a threat, while the mole/shrew/future furry sushi watched him. The whole set is worth a look.
BTW, this is currently the 10th most interesting image for 10/2 ... whatever that really means in the scheme of things.
added to Cream of the Crop as my best of 2005.
