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.

Is this your photo? Terrific shot. They are magnificent creatures. It's wonderful that you don't mind sharing with the foxes. I wish I had apricots and plums growing and could say the same. Darn drought.

What a beautiful animal. I agree with REX, "great picture". You should frame it and hang in a place of honor in your home. You should probably enter it in a photo contest.

GREAT picture! I had no idea that gray/grey foxes could climb trees.

There was a picture on edhat a few years back (before the new site) that someone submitted, of a Mama red fox up in a pear tree with two kits below waiting for her to drop fruit for them. I never knew that they ate fruit and never knew they climbed. :)
