Yesterday I went to see where a fox had danced across the ice on my neighbour's pond. Now I have images of dancing foxes in my head.

Russet red, thick furred, bush tailed and elegant. A dance of fox love beneath the full moon light. But no, single paw tracks. So this fox dances alone in winter.


  1. Oh he must make a wonderful sight, he must be full of the joys of life. Magnificent, thank you for this.
    It is Christmas Eve here in NZ and night will soon be here and with it Santa will be leaving gifts to all the children, the first children in the world to receive his gifts
    ...and I feel as though you have just given me a gift ...a gift of this magnificent creature dancing ...alone in a winter wonderland (as opposed to our summer). Thank you.

  2. I love these tracks in the snow!
    Merry Christmas!

  3. Dancing the foxtrot! Thanks for a great chuckle and an interesting mental image.
