Silver Fox

I am so excited about seeing this beautiful, beautiful animal early this morning...and so happy I could get some decent photos.

From Churchill, is Silver Fox (Vulpes vulpes).

Ken de Smet and I were coming back into town from scoping birds at Cape Merry this morning.  Silver Fox was hunting at the edge of town.  It was quite unconcerned with us. 

Silver Fox is a melanistic form of the Red Fox.  I'll be posting more about my new most favourite animal - well, wild animal.  (No offence to my adorable cat Freddie!)


  1. Silver Foxes are very beautiful animals and I hope to see one in my life time.

  2. I don't think Freddie will might have to come home with a million toys for her.

    Lovely photos, can't wait to see if got some shots of belugas!

    1. I don't think she will either.

      Unfortunately, the beluga viewing was from afar - no pix of them. Next trip.
