One of my very favorite things to see from my office window is when the red fox trots across the back yard. I rarely can get to the deck with the camera fast enough, and doubt that I'll ever get a better picture than at Who is Sylvia?
Nevertheless, this morning I watched a lovely red Vulpes vulpes seem to float against the snow in the flat light of a cloudy morning. She (he?) was beyond the first row of apple trees by the time I made it outside.
About all you can see are the perky ears and the red fur. Maybe a hint of black stockings. This fox is colored much more normally than Sylvia was.
Remembering the encounter made me smile all day long whenever I thought of it. Do you have things that just make you smile all day that way?
