A fox out our back door

Ok, the craziest thing happened today. We live in a small subdivision, nothing really fancy, just your typical cookie cutter subdivision. Behind us is a canal and an empty field. Sometimes we catch a glimpse of a cat searching for its next meal back there, but nothing too exciting. But today we saw a fox. Who would think, right between two subdivisions filled with people and hardly a decent sized tree anywhere to be found we would have a fox out our back door! It was kind of cool to see. The kids thought it was great and enjoyed watching it, Brayden kept trying to get its attention, which being a loud boy he did and it soon got spooked and left. I don't think that we would have the opportunity to see that while up in the mountains, let alone virtually in our backyard with so many houses around! Clayton got a picture, but the camera didn't zoom in too well, it makes it look farther away than it was, which was just across the canal. You have to look really closely, he blends in with the weeds that are there. I just thought it was such a bizarre thing to see so close to home that I had to share!

That's crazy! You usually don't see foxes anywhere, especially out your back window. You must have had good timing to be able to see him.
