Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

These are some of the Lockheed C-130 military airplanes I’ve seen over town over the years, but this here Lynden Air Cargo Lockheed L-100 is the first civilian version I’ve ever spotted.

As seen looking south on Laguna:

And he’s peeling off those dollar bills
Slapping them down
One hundred, two hundred
And I can see those fighter planes
And I can see those fighter planes

A Brief History of Foxes in Golden Gate Park – Looks Like They’re Not Around Anymore

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Here are some recent reports of fox encounters in San Francisco:

2010 at Strybing Arboretum in Golden Gate Park

Another one in GGP

2010 in the Parkside near the Zoo

2009 in GGP

2009 at Strybing Arboretum in GGP

2009 near (or in) Daly City 

2001 in the Presidio

It was a lot easier to spot foxes back in the Aughts, back in the first decade of the 2000’s. But then poison got a few of them (and one got hit by a car on Crossover Drive, I think).

And native gray foxes are probably up there in the Presidio still, but I can’t point you to photos to show that. Oh well.

Here’s a report from Joyce W., who saw a Fantastic Mr. (or Mrs. Fox) back in 2009:

“It was about 4:00 pm and the fox was within 15 feet of JFK BLVD at the far West end.
It was intently watching a gopher hole on a wide open patch of mowed lawn.
Two cars stopped and watched in silence which didn’t seem to bother the fox.
It wasn’t until a jogger came by that the creature dashed into the woods.
I am 90% sure it was a Red Fox and not our local Grey Fox.  Very striking colour combination with the red, black and white.
How did these creatures end up in the park? Amazing.

I regret that my cell phone was tucked away.  I was mesmerized by the vision before my eyes and didn’t want to divert my gaze for a second.
I watched it be absolutely still for at least three minutes.”

Here are some of the red foxes I’ve photographed in GGP over the years:

The last fox I photographed in Golden Gate Park. A wispy blur:

From about 175 feet away in Strybing Arboretum. She’ll see you before you see her:
