Fox and Rabbit

This morning I woke up to that painful sound of a screaching rabbit. Look out the window and see a large tail sweeping behind the chicken waterer.  FOX and tell the man, get the camera... Here are some shots for you.  I need a new camera and a better lens as can be told by the photos but what can I do?


I believe what luered this fox here is the fact that I recently released a rabbit into the yard which was injured by another rabbit.  The rabbit has stayed close by this week and left his scent everywhere.

Foxy tried to attack a rabbit in a cage on the ground and was not amused.  He/she sat briefly to ponder why I would wrap his meal in such a device.

He then came over to the house to look inside and check out our woodshed where my recently released rabbit has been hanging around.

Looks like the fox hasn't missed too many meals and is planning a nice rabbit dinner soon. What a beauty - nice photographs too.
