Camping, my ears hurt from the sound of the rain and wind that beat down on the tent. By the chill morning the blue spring sky plus sun had reasserted its dominion.
I poke my head out of the tent ready to start the new day. A fox sits looking at me, its front legs far apart facing the sun. It is a sorry-looking fox, fur in all directions, like it had been through a spin dryer. The fox is attempting to dry itself in the sun.
I typically had no camera to record a great photo opportunity near my tent. The fox remains an elusive four-legged goal to photograph. A message of this event: know your goal; prepare for your goal; seize the opportunity to meet the goal. I shall take my camera with me camping in future.
