Welcome to Fox Friday, the weekly display of a few of the photos from the previous seven days taken in The Bone Yard, an urban fox feeding station in the heart of Midland, Texas. Last week Old Crooked Tail had a follower -- a smaller fox snacking on OCT's leftovers. The small one got a little too close to the food before OCT was finished, and OCT made an aggressive gesture that sent the small one scampering. What's the story there? Maybe OCT is a family member showing the little one the ropes, but in any case she wasn't too eager to share the spoils. This week the small one lagged as much as a couple of hours behind. Foraging is a lonely endeavor.
Then there are the feral cats. One particularly vicious cat hasn't been around in a couple of weeks. So that's good news for the foxes. Another cat, a black one, frequents the area but this one doesn't eat as much as the other one did. And with only one cat feasting on the fox food there's usually enough for the cat and at least one fox.
Let's get started.
That's it for this Fox Friday. See ya next time.
