Last night John and I witnessed something unusual. Two sand hill cranes flew in and landed between our condo and the pond. As I was preparing to take their photo, I noticed a red fox just a few feet from them.
At one point the fox was between the cranes trying to find a way to escape.
My photo isn’t very good, but you can see the sand hills chasing the fox away. He hightailed it to the other side of the pond.
Tonight it happened again. I saw the swift red fox running across the golf course fairway behind our condo. And right behind the fox there were the two sand hill cranes in hot pursuit. Didn’t have time to get the camera out but I think from now on, I’ll be ready at sunset.
