Stray Casts will intelligently report and observe, hopefully with a touch of wit, on daily occurrences, reports and releases related to Chicago-area outdoors from bucks to bass to birds to bugs

Wild of the Week: Fox family

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Rick Remington comes through again.


His work may have taken him to western Illinois recently, but Remington still comes up with some of the strongest nature photography around.

He sent a series of photos on a fox family and I picked the one above.

He emailed:

I know you like Red Foxes so I am sending you a few pictures of a family I am watching in Galena right outside the territory where Eagle Ridge is located. What an amazing gift to watch these beautiful animals go about their daily business. I can sit and watch them for hours without getting bored.

I know what he means. They are fascinating and probably my favorite mammal, or at least one of them.
