Once again our evening entertainment was the strange pairing of our dinner guests. At around 5:30 the fox arrived for an early snack and was gone again almost immediately. Thanks to my husband’s advice to leave the camera on top of the washer each evening after I put out the dog food, I was able to snap one photo. Please keep in mind that the animals are under a yellow security light and I am still taking these photos from a distance, through a window. I’m sure someone else could take better photos on manual or something, but I’m NOT that good. So you can just consider these “proof” not art. LOL
Later I glanced out the window and the opossum was dining alone. Within thirty minutes he was joined by the fox and they seemed to tolerate each other quite well.
Now, either the fox is quite cautious and needs to snack often, OR there is more than one fox. I haven’t quite decided. Let me just say that there is a fox in the yard at least three different times per evening. So….later I looked out and the fox was snacking again…this time with a skunk. I literally held my breath for a few minutes, anticipating what might happen. But they both just ate in peace. The fox soon left. The skunk got a drink and one more bite, then followed him.
The raccoons never arrived last night, but were here bright and early- 4m- this morning and still found a few morsels of dog food to munch. I seldom photograph them anymore because I’m probably the only person you know who already has over 500 raccoon photos. Yes, I’ve deleted some of them!
I know this is yet another post about critters and you are probably bored with them, but I am a woman of eclectic tastes and strange obsessions, and you already knew that!
I’m off to Texas today to do what normal people do….shop. I have a list of things I can’t find here, a husband who is eager to go to Hobby Lobby, and a gift card for Books-A-Million. My only problem today will be finding a lunch menu that isn’t frightening. I’ll preview online.
A few words of wisdom before I go:
Please, please, please do not “celebrate” the New Year by drinking so much that you don’t live to see it arrive!
