Not far, maybe between 25 to 100 meters. That first group was on the other side of the ridge that I photographed them on. As I topped the ridge they were about 25 meters down slope laying in the snow. They started getting up and I back peddled pretty quick the way I came. They topped the ridged looked at me and proceeded to move up to higher ground.

They are like moose they have no fear of people, just as long as you give them respect and space they don't show much interest in people and get on with doing their own thing.

I still consider that very brave of you!

I'm definately following this--great topic, Sakari. Love your pictures, evancj. I love seeing the coons, fox, yotes, deer, & elk that you are all catching on camera. I should save up for a trail cam. I would love to see the foxes that I hear yipping and screaming (they make the weirdest noises, especially in January and February) in my valley just below my house. Keep this thread alive, and thanks!

I decided to go up to the foothills above my house today to see what I could see. I apologize for the low quality photos but if was getting dark when I took these.

Some nice bucks, a 4 point, and a 2 point.

A couple of large bull elk up on the mountain side, it was pretty much dark when I saw these guys so the photo is not that great.

Here's a red fox trotting through the yard from last February, 2012--I'll get more pictures as they come around at the end of this month and throughout this Feb. That's the peak of their mating (and fighting, screaming, trilling, and calling) season here. I couldn't figure out what animal was making the sounds until I looked up fox calls on You Tube and found these great examples--the Gekkering is the strangest noise.



This fox has got some mange on it's tail--it was a rough summer here last year, and there were lots of skin problems on the wildlife. He looks pretty healthy, otherwise.

Very nice shots catti,

Thank you for posting them. I love red foxes. I like all the different color phases they have. Around here we seem to get a lot of very light orange to grey phase foxes. In Washington I saw quite a few black phase foxes. What color phases do you see in PA?

Thanks! We have both reds and grays, but I see red fox around here because I have the habitat they like best: farmland and rolling hills. I've spotted a completely silver 'red' fox that didn't look very red at all, but had the white tipped tail. The red's coat can vary greatly--from bright true orange to a black undercoat tipped with red. I love seeing the red fox in its melanistic (spelling?) phase where the legs and hind quarters are all black. Sometimes I can only tell the red and the grey fox apart by the red's white tipped tail.


I have never seen a cross fox in the wild, but I used to be a vet technician, and held one in my lap--gorgeous creature from Canada, white and silver with a black 'cross' streaked across her shoulders and down her back. She shouldn't have been a pet, I know, but it was an experience I won't forget.


Now, if only I could get a photo of the coyotes that have moved into my valley--they fascinate me. They are much bigger around here than out west (I lived in AZ for a littlewhile).

Not sure if I posted the pic with a fawn and fox in same pic here....I know I posted the fox we have that hangs around about 4 moths out of the year...Miss the little guys, hope they are safe.
