Photo Details

  • Title: Wary Arctic Fox
  • State/Province/Region (required): Montana
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Town: Kalispell
  • Description: This enchanting arctic fox (alopex lagopus) is well-suited for frigid weather, from its short muzzle and ears, to its furry soled paws and thick, bushy tail. It uses its tail to snuggle under, to guard against arctic winds, and its beautiful fur adapts to the seasons acting as superb camouflage. This photograph beautifully illustrates the camouflage effect of the winter white fur in the snow. The stance shows the fox is poised to dart away, yet his curiosity holds him in frame for a perfect moment, just long enough to capture those vibrant, piercing eyes staring warily into the camera lens (or at the photographer), making for a dramatic, unforgettable photographic capture
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Gear: Canon 1D Mark III
