Big 5s

“The Arctic fox is probably my favourite animal to photograph, especially in the high Arctic in winter. They are the only land mammals that can survive at these latitudes, as polar bears are technically considered marine mammals. It is a beautiful animal that perfectly recalls the Arctic habitat with its long white hairs.

Most of them are completely white in winter. Some change colour from grey to white, according to the season, and others remain grey year-round, which are the so-called blue fox. Personally, my favourite is the white version, particularly on a cold snowy day.

Photographing Arctic foxes is sometimes challenging, as they are often very active and keep running around in search for food.”
