The fox on the hunt!

Once again this picture is from Fall, just before the snow begins to change the landscape. I had observed at the end of October that there were numerous squirrels in one area of the garden, and where the squirrels congregate the fox is never far. And so it was, as I was hiding behind a tree so as to not spook the fox he approached. He crouched slowly like a cat towards the squirrels, and at times quickly darted to catch one but he missed very time as the squirrels were always near a tree. I was able to observe this game for a good 30 minutes before people passing by scared the fox away.
