When shooing him away didn't work I decided to photograph this fox... that's obviously what he wanted!

The sad part of this picture is that he was obviously looking for food... people have probably been feeding them scraps out of their cars near the locks. This was shot with a wide-angle lens... this fox was just a few feet in front of me.

Yeah he seems really tame, but I didn't want to test that past taking a few shots. I half expected that he was distracting me while 10 more foxes were sneaking up behind me waiting to take me down :P

Neat pic.

There's a family of them living in the mill where Hubby works. Said it's kinda freaky when you're walking in in the morning and they start following you. He said they watched them yesterday frollicking with each other on top of piles of stock.

They asked the guy that does the pest control what could be done about them, as they are getting quite brave and freaking the guys out as they follow them around in the mill and apparently because they are "wildlife" he can't do anything about it. Sounds like they'd have to trap them and relocate them much the same as the bear problem everyone is having.

Wow, great photo! I don't think I could've been that brave to stand there taking pictures as tempting as it would've been. If there isn't something between me and the animals when I'm taking pictures... I'm out of there lol.

Haha, "brave" may not be the right word :D but after repeated attempts to shoo him away he just sat there and posed for me. I had my camera in my hand so I figured "why not?"

I was just wasting time shooting pictures of the bridges... but this was far more interesting.

Karm I love the shot. Amazing - the fox looks like he posed there just for you.

Thanks. When I moved he followed and then posed again...

lol I still couldn't have stood there and took pictures, the most I would've done is snap a few while quickly walking away.

He has been hanging out at the boardwalk lately. Seen him there two days ago. He's not shy, but not outgoing either. I wish they would relocate him so he doesn't get hit by a car!

Very nice pics by the way :)

What a fantastic shot! I love wildlife photos, and obviously this little guy was ready for his big moment!!

He's run in front of my car a few times. I live near the plant and I've seen foxes many times lately on Wallace Terrace and Goulais Avenue heading in/out of the plant property.

Great pics!
