Some time ago Deb & I were kayaking parts of the Okefenokee Swamp in southeast Georgia. WE had paddled from the Stephen Foster Park area, which is located in the southwest part of the swamp itself. From the park we paddled up the small canal into the larger water body then turned right toward the even larger northeast part. After paddling some distance we then diverted to the left up a small canal for a 1/5 mile or so. While slowly moving through the canal we happen to notice some movement upward in a tree about 15 yards or so from the bank of the canal. When we focused on the movement we saw what you see in this image. A gray fox appeared to be waking up from a nap & was yawning. Naturally we started photographing it as fast as we could and luckily we had our 600 mm lens attached to our cameras.
Of course, if you look closely you will probably notice this image is a little more than a standard photograph. I, Bill, along with Deb's verbal input here & there digitally painted a copy of the photograph to see if we could enhance the image to our liking using the digital art painting enhancements. Of course, since we posted it we're sure you realize we are happy with the results. Hopefully, you will be, too. Now for some gray fox facts.
The gray fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus), or grey fox, is a carnivorous mammal of the family Canidae ranging throughout most of the southern half of North America from southern Canada to the northern part of South America (Venezuela and Colombia). No other canid's natural range spans both North and South America and it is the only American canid that can climb trees. This species and its only congener, the diminutive Channel Island fox (Urocyon littoralis), are the only living members of the genus Urocyon, which is considered to be the most basal of the living canids. Though it was once the most common fox in the eastern United States, and still is found there, human advancement and deforestation allowed the red fox to become more dominant. The Pacific States still have the gray fox as a dominant. Its specific epithet cinereoargenteus means "ashen silver.
