Silver Fox (a melanistic Red Fox), seen along the side of the road. Very tame.
I can see I missed this while I was on vacation! Beautiful Fox!
This is a fantastic spotting. Would it be possible to re-frame the photo -- say from the original digital image -- so that it better fills the brown window, and generates thumbnails where the extremities are not truncated?
In response to AshishNimkar and Thurd13, contrary to what the Wikipedia article says, this is not a selectively bred animal in captivity. This is simply selective breeding over a long period of time in the wild. The dark form must have provided advantages with respect to camouflage, as it is considered fairly common in some areas of the north.

Yes, very interesting info Ashish. Thanks for that....explains the different coloring.
Wonderful photos, beautiful colors. Love the expression/eyes. Have you seen the Missions? This is a good spotting for Best Wildlife Mission and possibly more if there are local ones to your region. Welcome to Project Noah! Great shots.
