Fox in the Yard

It's my birthday today, and I have the day off. I was off yesterday as well, so at 10.30 in the morning I was sitting in the living room drinking a cup of coffee. Looking out over the sunlight-filled courtyard of my building, I was amazed to see ... a fox. It was standing on the wall, looking straight at me; I ran to get my camera, and it was still there when I got back.


If you click on the photo to see it full size, you'll see the fox is looking right at the camera. It's a little eerie, but also a little magical.

Happy birthday Will. And delighted to hear that you are on the verge of published novelist status.
May I recount my fox encounter nearly two years ago?
Balmy summer nearly morning. Yours truly safe in bed. Wife dozing on the front room sofa. Back door open. Mr Cheeky Fox appears in front room to the considerable shock of my wife. He's chased out but much damage is done, including my favourite leather shoes destroyed and strewn across the back garden.
Lesson? Keep back door shut.

Whew!It is indeed a beautiful shot as what JRSM said but I think it takes a lot of courage to do that. I just cannot imagine if you are just outside...
