With the foggy, snowy conditions we are currently experiencing, it’s hard to find some color in this landscape. Unless some animals creep into the view, it’s really a pretty monochromatic scene in the marsh and on the lake at Snail Lake Park. There was nothing stirring here on this chilly, snowy morning.
I have seen a red fox several times in the far backyard this winter, but have been too slow with the camera to get a photo of it. Fellow Minnesotan Mark Udstrand stumbled upon this red fox several years ago and was able to photograph its hunting and playing (with a mouse) for over an hour. You can view a slideshow of his fantastic photos here.
Another fellow Minnesotan (Paul Sundberg) has also had great luck photographing his resident Red Fox and you can view his photos here.
Maybe some day I’ll be able to post my own photos of this adept and beautiful hunter.
