Living in the high arctic I have a lot of great possibilities to photograph the wildlife around here.
This project is about the Arctic Fox.
The arctic fox has the warmest pelt of all animals found in the arctic, enduring temperatures down to -70 degrees Celsius. When the weather conditions gets too cold, the metabolism increases to provide warmth.
They are primarily solitary animals living on the Arctic tundra and pack ice.
Arctic Fox does not hibernate and their fur changes colours with the seasons.
In the summer the Arctic fox has a brown or great coat with a lighter belly. It then turns into a thick white one in the winter. It is the only canid that changes the colour of its coat, allowing it to camouflage with the snow and ice in the winter and rocks and plants in the summer.
I really enjoy photographing the arctic fox. They are super curious animals, always looking for food. and who knows, maybe i have something, or my camera could be something they can eat.
