What’s good: Foxes and heron

Fox kits cross a field in Hillsborough, NJ

It looked like there would be some nasty thunderstorms late this afternoon, so I hopped in the Jeep and headed out. I was driving along the South Branch of the Raritan River and saw a Great Blue Heron on the opposite bank. I pulled over and as I climbed down the bank, the bird flew farther down the river. Then he walked out on a log in the river at a bend and posed from some shots. The storm didn’t really happen, there was a short rain and some clouds, but they cleared. I started to head for home and noticed something running in a plowed field. It was red tail fox kits and they were casually crossing the open field.
