Love it, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: I saw tracks at work yesterday.
Good one/two Mary...
Mary MacADNski: Through screens, both of them.

How fortunate to catch the two animals like this, Mary
Mary MacADNski: It is always grab your cameras no matter what lens you have on as there are only seconds.

Luckily sees inside and can watch the fox from safety. I like the light on the fox in the second shot.
Mary MacADNski: That was the beautiful light I noticed him from another window. By the time I grabbed the camera, the cat was in the way and the fox was in the shade. Luckily in a few more steps the light returned. This was all through a screen.

Ooh - deadly enemies!
Mary MacADNski: They certainly are on cats. We also have coyotes who are deadly to pets. Then there are the eagles.... I love wildlife but it is almost scary to let the cats out in winter when they can be so easily seen by all of the above.
I love that picture of Purll (or Alma) watching Mr Fox Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I do too though it is poor quality due to be taken through a screen without regard to settings.

This is wonderful, great juxtaposition of the two predators. One wild one domestic.
Mary MacADNski: I am glad they are on opposite sides of the glass. Years ago I showed a shot of Kenz being chased by a fox.
Living with nature, what a super pair of shots
Mary MacADNski: I am glad the cats were inside.

J'aime beaucoup les renards, ce sont de très beaux animaux.
Mary MacADNski: We have a lot of foxes on the island.
i am glad you were able to compose the shot the way you did, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Just grabbed the camera with yesterday's settings if you know what I mean. I had only seconds.
I don't know about where you live but we have Foxes living in the wild and what are called Urban Foxes living in towns and cities these days.
Mary MacADNski: We call them urban foxes then they are in the cities and suburbs but I am out in the country so they are presumably wild animals here. People keep feeding them though they really should not.
Wisely watching from a safe distance.
Mary MacADNski: Thank goodness it was cold (seeing frost on the grass) or the cats would have been out already.

Two lovely pictures, I like how you have caught the light on its fur in the second one.
Mary MacADNski: That was the beautiful light I noticed him from another window. By the time I grabbed the camera, the cat was in the way and the fox was in the shade. Luckily in a few more steps the light returned.
Just passing through!
Mary MacADNski: Ha ha, The name of a web movie made here.
She's on it! What a great shot with really lovely lighting!
Mary MacADNski: This winter it is squirrels they are watching. The brush from the apple tree remains and squirrels are hanging out in the brush pile - right outside the window in front of me and usually Ruby and the patio doors which holds many cats.
