Red Fox in Milwaukee County Wisconsin on March 4, 2016

Out birding today at a park in Milwaukee County I came across a stunning Red Fox. It gave nice views in the relax mode before it left the area. A very slow day birding with just common birds being seen. Images were taken on March 4, 2016.

    Great shots, Jim. A couple of years ago we had a family(7 pups) of fox living at the end of our backyard. Worried about our cats, but nothing happened. It was lots of fun watching them playing. A great animal.
