A fox stopped by to check out the activity at this scratch post (normally reserved for bobcats). Besides squirrels and bobcats, this was one of the few animals to check out this set. Foxes often show up at many of my sets with surprising abundance. It's hard to say if my frequency of fox pictures is the result of a high density of foxes, species characteristics such as large home ranges, simple curiosity, or the desire to capitalize on a free meal. One thing is for sure: foxes, both grey and red, cover a large geographic range and are extremely successful in a variety of habitats.
