Fox seen today at bottom of hill near Adirondack Dr. NE and J Ave. Have seen it several times there in recent weeks.

Sly fox not shy in NE Cedar Rapids

This is at least the third time in as many weeks that this lone fox has shown himself strolling in the field off J Ave and Adirondack Dr. NE, just next to the Cedar River. Previously when I'd slow down to watch him, he took off running. Today was able to pull over, stop, roll down my window and snap this pic just as he began to run off into the thicker greenery. Hmmm, wonder what he's been eating?
