Via Byron Annis, La Crosse WI (http://byronannis.blogspot.com): “Charles Annis took this picture in August 2008. Our uninvited and unwanted garden guest was startled as she was just starting to sample the hosta leaves in the salad-de-jour. If you look very carefully you may see a thin white line running more or less horizonally through the middle of the photo. This is our electric fence. Really effective, isn’t it?”

Buck With Odd Antlers (Colorado)

Via Earl Perry: “There’s a fair amount of auto damage to mule deer here, non-fatal as well as fatal. I’m wondering if this is the grownup of a little guy I saw a couple years ago with a badly damaged left pedicel. It’s also of interest that he’s solitary, when a lot of the bucks at this time of year have joined small mixed-age mixed-sex herds. Again, back yard.”

Another Red Fox in Colorado

Another photo from Earl Perry: “Our front yard, in a canyon about a mile from Boulder. An unusually red red fox; we have them in melanistic variants, some nearly pure black. Close look – it’s at the limits of crispness – shows a deermouse in the mouth of the fox. To be truthful, I know it’s there because I saw the fox take it and toss it; if I had only this photo to go on I would disbelieve.”

Via cojacket:

“I  took this photo of a fox standing by my front steps at my home near
Breckenridge, Colorado. You can identify me as cojacket if you use it.

 

“Great website. I am much happier to see a fox at my front door than those
lions!”
