I grabbed my camera and headed for the sun porch.
He went toward the fence along Lake Avenue and leaped on top.
Where to go.
I saw him hid behind the day lilies and went out in the yard thinking, “Foxes don’t attack humans, do they?”
He was running east, carrying something in his mouth.
I certainly did not center the camera.
He dropped the little creature and kept running, so I went out on the road to try to get a picture of it.
The pictures of the fox on the other side of the street turned out to be on the very edge of the lower right hand side of the frame.
I’ve enlarged them, but they are very fuzzy.
The one on top of the fence turned out pretty good, though.
I’m told there is a family living on the Crystal Lake Country Club, as well as one near the old sewage plant east of McHenry Avenue.
This part of Lakewood is in the watershed of the Fox River, by the way.
