Gray Fox sketch I used for a watercolor painting; soon to be a T shirt design
I see some movement off in the distance; it appears to be a small mammal of some sort. I think it may be a Gray Fox. I’m walking through some tall dry grass toward a small grove of Willows and Cottonwood where it was headed. As I walk along, grasshoppers scatter in front of me making noises sounding somewhat like a rattlesnake! I walk slower and more cautiously. Yes, there’s something beneath that Cottonwood, but what is it? I’m close now, but I see nothing. I’m sure it was a Gray Fox, but I’ll return another day and take another look.
