Red foxes roam out early in the morning in pursuit of small rodents, listening carefully for the scamper of their prey. When they hear it, it’s go time. The fox leaps up into the air, ready to land on their pursued meal. In the winter time, it certainly makes for an entertaining show:

Have a great weekend, everyone!
