What a shock to look out my window and see this!

I am not much of a birder, so I didn't even know what species it was! It is so very fancy-looking, like something you would see at the zoo!

I shot it through the fly screen, because I knew if I stood up and moved over for a clearer shot, it would be gone in a flash.

I do have black oil sunflower seed in my bird feeder which is attached to the large center pane of the same window, so maybe it ate some of those seeds...

I entered the forest, expecting to find something new, maybe a plant or insect; this was not what I had in mind! I surveyed the ground looking for something interesting to photo. I found a few flowers, a bee, and a young pine.

I was hunched over a lily getting a picture for iNaturalist when I decided a look up, and when I did, I was shocked! Just down the hill on the trail stood a Red Fox, looking right back at me!

It caught me off guard and I quickly stood up. "I had to get a photo" I thought. I whipped out my camera, nearly dropping it, and frantically got a few shots. Only three where all that good.

I wasn't the only one to see the fox. Beside me was an Eastern Gray Squirrel, which didn't seem to like the fox at all. The squirrel screeched and whipped its tail. It refused to get out of the trees while the fox was around.

Moving back to the fox, I noticed that beside it lied the corpse of an Eastern Cottontail, possibly the foxes prey. It was almost the same size as the fox. Minutes pass and the Red Fox decided to get up. It trotted a few feet before diving into its den. I thought that would be the end of it, but moments later it reemerged with a buddy. Together, they wondered off deeper into the woods.

What an amazing sight!

There was lots of it today on a garden Juniper in a raised flower bed outside a building right on my block but very near to 1st Avenue. The two other Junipers in those beds did not have any of the fungus on them.

I am really not sure which species they are.

The little dimples/pimples that are visible along the right edge should be a clue as to what they are.
