Red Fox

While walking back from Gabriel Dumont Park last weekend, out of the corner of my left eye, I watched a Red Fox sprinting along the frozen river toward the direction of the bridge at Diefenbaker Park.
I didn't have much time to react, but got off 3 shots. 2 of which are posted.
I also made an animated gif file of him running, that I will put up along one of the sidebars.

Bless his heart. Running like his life depended on it and it probably does. It is a shame animals seem to suffer the consequences of human beings.

Thanks guys. He looked healthy enough, and luckily there is enough deep cover in the woods alongside the park to hide a nice little population of these beautiful animals.
