Photographer's Note

National Historic Park of Cape Spear.
On my way back home, something black, grey and fuzzy suddenly cross the road in front of my car and disappear in the tall grass. I stopped the car of course, because I couldn't believe what I just saw: a fox but black, not red.
I was trying to spy it in the grass when it slowly emerged from behind that big rock and stood on it. The fox seemed to have something very interesting in front of him. As you can tell he was gazing intently that patch of grass on the right.
It left me plenty of time to catch my camera, change the lens and shoot.
Just after that picture, the fox did a wonderful jump to land on that 'something' and I didn't see it again.

I'm not equiped to take pictures of animals in the wild. So I was lucky this one was so close to me.

I learned later that foxes are mainly red, but it's not uncommon to see some of them brown or black.
