The Wildlife of South Dublin - Continued

Susanne was over last night - we had a bite to eat, courtesy of Brendan (squid rings, pasta with prawns, and strawberries and ice-cream!) and we watched the DVD of Volver, Pedro Almodóvar's latest movie, which we had been planning to watch for quite a while. Volver wasn't quite what I had expected (I guess I had expected a mad funny movie like Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown). It had a lot more depth, and was very moving.

When Susanne was leaving, she saw a fox on the green in front of the house, and we watched it for a while, as it was following a trail very close to us. I think it was quite a young fox - it seemed to have no fear of us at all. And all the while, there was a white cat hiding under the cars parked across the road there, keeping a close eye on it. (Needless to say, Willow was oblivious to all of this - he was asleep at one of his favourite observation points: the window upstairs). The trail the fox was following eventually took it further away, but not before Brendan managed to take a few pictures!
