|Here we go. Foxes meet once again at a dead deer carcass. I blew the picture up so you could|
more easily see the opossum (located in the middle-left of the picture) that is watching the action.
|What could be going on here?|
|Did you expect this "fight" to end like this? I didn't.|
|After a little canid copulation, it's back to some roughness.|
I (as well as you might be) am getting a little tired of so many fox pictures. I've gone through a few thousand of them in the past week alone and want something even more exciting. I got a little excited though with a new camera-trapped species for me today.
|Skunk at my set for birds and squirrels in a very productive cam-trap site.|
Mephitis mephitis came by one of my camera trap sets recently. That's right, your very own, Virginia native, Striped skunk. Striped skunks as you may or may not know are actually not quite yet in mating season. They'll start in about a month or so and will start having their offspring around mid-May in northern Virginia. So no, I do not have any skunk mating pictures to share just yet, but getting a new species today was just fine with me.
