Red Fox at the Milwaukee Lakefront July 17, 2014

While birding on the lakefront in Milwaukee Wisconsin I came across a couple of Red Foxes. They were out for a few minutes and gave some nice views. In a short time they had disappeared. Photographs were taken on July 17, 2014.

    Wow, Jim. Your recent opportunity of pictures has been very diverse. They are once again, awesome. Thanks for sharing. They are just like being there in person.

    Really enjoyed these photos of the Red Fox, Jim!!! Haven’t seen any of these out here in our neck of the woods (Hay Springs, NE) due to the fact that so many are randomly shot, unfortunately.

    So glad to be included in your blog posts…keep on taking the great pics!
