Gray Fox

Late on a very warm, muggy, cloudy morning, a Gray Fox ran across the road not far ahead of me. It came from an area of privet thickets and thick undergrowth along the dead-end road just outside our subdivision, and ran across the road and into the field, where it quickly disappeared in the shrubs, weeds, grasses and trees.

The fox looked rather heavy and muscular to me, impressive in size – not as slender as I usually think a fox will be. Its fur was grizzled gray with red highlights, and it had a long bushy tail, a feline-fox face and large ears. My view of it was brief, but fairly close and vivid.
