Arctic Fox (Vulpes lagopus)

 

Arctic Fox (Vulpes lagopus), Churchill, Manitoba - Canada

This image of an Arctic fox was taken in November in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. I had travelled there to photograph polar bears but the Arctic foxes proved to be a real highlight. It had been a very good Lemming year around Churchill during the summer and the local Arctic foxes had an exceptional breeding year. They were easily seen morning and evening in and around the small town.
