Sarah and I were on our way to one of our walking/running spots north of town, but almost there I had to change the plan, much to Sarah's disappointment. She wanted very much to make a new friend! I could see the appeal, too, but Mr. (or Ms.?) Fox looked harried enough already, hot and thirsty and not eager to play with a dog. We went elsewhere after I got these shots.
Just seeing the beautiful wild thing was excitement enough.
