The recent storm that blew through our valley covered everything with a powdery white blanket of snow. Over this past weekend we were able to observe and enjoy the antics of a couple of our neighbors romping and playing in their new white world. Yesterday our dog Maggie let us know that these same neighbors had taken up residence under the huge stack of hay in the pasture next door.
Here are a few photos that I shot through our upstairs window. They came out much better than I had expected considering that this hay stack is about 100 yards away, but I knew if I were to go outside with my camera these shy little neighbors of ours would have disappeared and I would have nothing to share at all.
I think that this is the male.
He appeared to be very restless
and moved around a lot
keeping a eye out for intruders.
The Fox on top of the hay is also a Red Fox
although she is what they call a gray
or coyote colored Red Fox.

Keeping a watchful eye...
Out of the wind...
Enjoying the sunshine!
