Welcome to Fox Friday, the weekly exhibition of the best photos of the urban foxes in Midland, Texas, from the past seven days, although this week had an extra day in it. Let's consider that a bonus and get started.
It's a challenge telling the foxes apart. However, a couple of them have distinguishing tail characteristics. For example, from the hips to the tip, Scrawny Tail has a different look.
Now compare those two tails with this one.
Most of the time the feral cats get the food first. In fact, they seem to be waiting for it, although they stay hidden. The food consists of two frozen raw chicken drumsticks which must not give off much of a smell at first, because foxes have walked right by them without stopping. In this sense feral cats are smarter than foxes as they find and don't seem mind eating frozen dinners.
Photo notes: The night photos come out gray and black, and if the animal was too close to the camera, the infrared flash gave the subject a washed-out look. Therefore, the gamma was tweaked a bit on some to correct that feature.
Editor's Note: You know it's Saturday, don't you? The inability to distinguish days of the week may be an early indicator of Alzheimer's. Robo-ed | Oh shut up. Sleepless.
