[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is another shot of the fox from yesterday morning.

This morning my wife and I rose before sunrise to see if we could see the Orionid meteor shower (a trail of debris left in space by Halley's Comet) which was at its most intense today. While we watched for cometsówe saw about 5 of themówe heard foxes barking in the yard. They have a very distinctive sound.

Hello Michael,
A great shot of this Red Fox. These guys are so elusive that any sighting in my opinion is a cherished moment. TFS.
It was pretty cloudy here the night the comets were supposed to appear, so I didn't stay up to watch.
