Default Fox Hunting Squirrel

This was a series my daughter captured on Christmas morning - what a treat to be able to watch this all unfold. Taken from a window of our home at 500mm on a monopod - a bit blurry considering the adrenaline. This all occurred beneath two lonely trees in an expansive yard beneath a bird feeder - a perfect ambush site for the fox. I'll let the photos tell the tale...

Wow cool series!! The gray fox in our area will climb trees. Do these? I'm not a big fan of squirrels so, hooray to the fox!

This is a great study in fox slyness. My dog could take a lesson from this fox. She chases squirrels off the feeder in our back yard all day long, with no results. The squirrel is on the feeder, she runs out barking, he runs up the tree, she runs back in, he comes down, and it repeats endlessly - it is like a game to them. It would be funny to watch if she would only shut up!

Here's what that looks like:
