a fox among the hens

i got a wildlife camera for christmas. i wanted to catch that jerk of a fox that ate three ducks and two roosters this autumn. i placed the camera outside our henhouse, where the chickens and the lone duck that remain are safely tucked behind a very secure door and fence during the day. it clearly doesn't keep him from strolling past to check on a nightly basis. we've set a trap for him and in the top picture, he's strolling nonchalantly past it.

He's a cute little bastard...
LOVE that you got a wild camera though - I am so keen for one to catch snaps of otters and birds and things that go thump in the night.
