While taking a few days for R&R near Yosemite, I ran into this beautiful Gray Fox (or Grey if you prefer) roaming near our pond in the early morning.
Some years ago I noticed that our suet feeders were being raided each night and couldn't figure the source. Then, when I went on "stake out," I saw the culprit - a gray fox jumping into the tree and climbing to the feeders. Mmmm… good eats!
Reading that the gray fox is the only North American canid that climbs I subsequently witnessed one or more over the years eating our plums and apricots as well. Fine by me.
